Greetings from the Alumni Association Board. I hope everyone had an enjoyable summer!
In case you weren’t able to join us, graduation was held on June 15th at Koerner Hall. André Picard was this year’s Honorary Diploma recipient. He shared wise words with the Michener community about the challenges of the health care of today and the future. Along with his wisdom, André shared with us his belief that our graduates would be the key to overcoming many of the barriers we face in providing quality care across Ontario. Among the graduates were Chelsea Mott (Respiratory Therapy) and Kaleigh Timmins (Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging Technology). Both served on our board over the past three years as student representatives. The board thanks them for their invaluable time and effort, and we look forward to working with them as colleagues.

Michener’s Orientation took place from August 26 to 30, and I was there to welcome the incoming class. Be sure to check our Facebook page for updates from this and other events.
Looking ahead, September 27 is the general deadline for Michener Scholarships and Awards. I know many Michener alumni are responsible in the training and education of Michener students and are already familiar with the awards available. If you’re not familiar, I encourage you to have a look at the Available Scholarship, Awards & Named Bursaries web page on michener.ca. In particular, the Michener Alumni Association Scholarship is available to graduates or children of graduates. Sean McCluskey (Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging Technology class of 1994) is currently the Alumni Board representative on the Awards Committee. This position involves the reading of all scholarship applications and selection of the recipients. I would like to thank Sean for taking on this demanding task!
As always, please send us feedback, suggestions, news or items that might be of interest to the alumni community at firstname.lastname@example.org. We would love to hear from you!
