January 10, 2017
I am in full swing getting ready for our 2017 Touro Gala in March, working on our invitations, honorees and preparing for our special guest speaker, former U.S. Secretary of Veterans Affairs, Anthony J. Principi. This wonderful event has sold out each year and I anticipate another sell-out crowd this year so if you want to attend, be sure to watch for information on tickets and get then as soon as you can.
Before we get to the Gala, we have Touro day at the Legislature on February 21. I love taking students to Carson City to meet with our elected officials and tell them why they chose to come to Touro to become a osteopathic physician, physical therapist, occupational therapist, or physician assistant.
March will be an extra fun month as we will be hosting the “Big Game” basketball between my California and Nevada campuses here in Nevada at Coronado High School on March 2. The students have a lot of fun and the rivalry is good-natured but quite competitive.
There are so many more events between now and the end of March including Research Day, Acceptance Day, Mark My Words Lecture and Reception, Admissions Open House, Nurse Pinning Ceremony, and the Big Give. If you want to know more about what we are doing, please reach out to my office of advancement at 702.777.3100 and schedule a tour.
All my best,
CEO and Senior Provost
Touro University Western Division
