About the SAHP Reunion

The School of Allied Health Professions will host the first all-school reunion on July 19-20, 2013. The program will include profession-specific events, continuing education, awards, lunch, and tours. The theme Allies Assemble, a play on the blockbuster movie, The Avengers. Healthcare professionals are real-life superheroes – they analyze, diagnose, restore, discover, and heal every day.

The SAHP Reunion will include the following professions: Clinical Laboratory Science (Celebrating the 75th anniversary of the program!), Clinical Perfusion Education, Cytotechnology, Medical Nutrition Education, Physical Therapy Physician Assistant, and Radiation Science Technology Education.
