A Message from the President of the MCG Alumni Association
One of my first duties as President of the MCG Alumni Association this year in April was to attend the annual reunion dinner. It was a great night going from room to room with Dean Hess, meeting all the reunion classes and catching up with many friends. The following morning on Sunday, I had the honor of participating in the memorial service for all our colleagues who had passed away in the last year. As the chaplain read a short biographical sketch about each of those we lost, I was overwhelmed with the accomplishments and contributions that each of these MCG alumni had made to medicine, their families, their faiths and their communities. I knew some of them personally. Read more »

President, MCG Alumni Association
A few months back you heard from 1995 MCG graduate Dr. Alan Smith about the MCG Alumni Association’s great initiative to purchase each of our first-year students their first stethoscope.
We received a great response from many MCG alumni but wanted to follow up with you to see if we can also have your support for our students. We all know that a stethoscope is an icon of our profession that remains a mainstay in practice. These stethoscopes carry the additional significance of bearing the seal of your also iconic medical school and its legacy of educating outstanding physicians.
I hope you will choose to support the next generation of MCG graduates and great physicians through this initiative.
For $250, you can fund one stethoscope for one student or you can support more students by increasing your gift. Some MCG alums have contributed $1,000 to benefit four medical students, which is really outstanding.
More information about this program, and how you can make a gift, can be found at mcgfoundation.org/stethoscope. If you have questions or would prefer to mail your check, please contact Ralph Alee at 706-721-7343.
Thank you for your support of your medical school.
