Board of Visitors
The Board of Visitors supports and advances the mission of the School of Medicine. As ambassadors for the school, board members serve as external advisors to the dean and faculty, introduce leaders in the business community to the School and assist with public relations on a regional, national and global level. By assisting in fund-raising and enlisting potential volunteers and business partners, board members provide resources and strategic input regarding the goals and objectives associated with programs that cultivate discovery, teaching and applications of biomedical knowledge.
