Dear alumni, students, donors, and friends,

With the end of the school year rapidly approaching and an endless to do list, we all have numerous demands on our attention.  I appreciate you taking a moment to catch up with the students, faculty, and alumni of the U-M College of Pharmacy.  I invite you to read about exciting research and innovations in healthcare, connect at an event, and consider running for the Alumni Association Board of Governors. Wherever life takes you, remember, Michigan Wolverines are always connected back to that place you once called home and to the people who are forever known as the leaders and best. Read, remember, reconnect, enjoy.

Go Blue!

Dean Jim Dalton
