International Programs to Hold Second Global Alumni Reunion

NYUCD's Office for International Programs will host its second Global Alumni Reunion in Hong Kong from May 6 to 9, 2010. The event will celebrate the achievements of International Programs alumni from 60 countries.

NYUCD offers 10 Advanced Programs for International Dentists and has over 800 alumni worldwide. Under the leadership of Ms. Dolores Spinelli, who assumed the position of Senior Director for International Programs in 2000, enrollment has grown from an annual enrollment of 45 students to over 100.

Dr. Stuart M. Hirsch, Associate Dean for International Programs and Development, said he expected attendance at the Hong Kong reunion to exceed the 120 people from 37 countries who came to the first International Programs reunion held in May 2008, in Florence, Italy. "At the upcoming reunion, you'll be able to renew acquaintances, make new friends, and attend lectures taught by top specialists in their fields, as well as presentations by alumni," said Dr. Hirsch, noting that over 100 people recently attended educational presentations by International Programs alumni in Beijing, China (see story).

The reunion agenda will include a welcoming reception on Thursday, May 6, and presentations on Friday, May 7, and Saturday, May 8, followed by a gala dinner on Saturday for alumni and their guests at Café Deco, located on Victoria Peak overlooking Hong Kong.
