Honoring the many donors who support medicine at Dartmouth, DHMC hosted its annual donor appreciation reception on October 26.
At the reception, guests mingled with DHMC leaders, including James Varnum, president of MHMH; Dr. Stephen Spielberg, dean of DMS; and Dr.Thomas Colacchio, president of the Clinic. Colacchio delivered the evening's keynote address—"Is There a Scientist in the House?"—describing DHMC's collaborative research environment.
"DHMC renders a great service to our community," said guest Cynthia Blake, "not only in terms of its wonderful medical care, but also in terms of bringing together so many dedicated and talented doctors, nurses, and researchers."
The event also included tours of Norris Cotton Cancer Center labs and the announcement by Vice President of Development Brian Lally that the Transforming Medicine Campaign had reached $109 million—"a true testament to the friends, alumni, corporations, and foundations that we consider our partners," he said.
