The John Beale Davidge Alliance Luncheon

Truants from Medicine
Medicine has always numbered in its ranks men and women who have made significant contributions to the arts. In a lecture delivered at the fourth Biennial International Film Festival at the University of Texas Health Science Center, John Bowers, ’38, examined the lives of a few physicians whose contributions have earned them lasting renown in the areas of music, drama, and literature—so much so that you may be unaware of their medical training.

A message from the MAA president, plus highlights of the 129th reunion of the Medical Alumni Association including the Historical Clinicopathological Conference, Recognition Luncheon and class parties.

Shedding Light on the Sun’s Harmful Effects
The new editor for Archives of Dermatology is a nationally regarded skin cancer expert currently serving as professor and director of the division of dermatology at Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine. Dr. Robinson is on a mission to educate the public that too much sun can be fatal.

Match Day
Graduates from the Class of ’04 learned the locations of their future training during the annual Match Day ceremony in Davidge Hall on Thursday, March 18. The percentage of those heading to primary care was 43% this year, compared to 53% last year. The reason: fewer graduates choosing pediatrics.
