Vital Signs

Community and responsibility were Class Day themes

The skies were leaden but the mood upbeat at Dartmouth Medical School's 2007 Class Day ceremonies. Among those reveling in the festivities were 1 Rebecca Hurley, left, who did her doctoral research in the lab of biochemist Lee Witters, right; 2 a gaggle of gowned master's degree students, including 3 Sajida Kimambo, who was adding an M.P.H. to her M.D.; 4 and, presiding over the occasion, DMS Dean Stephen Spielberg. Among the 54 graduates who were granted M.D.'s were, 5 from the left, Kevin Desrosiers, Jennie Baek, and Scott Tobis, as well as 6 Julianne Mann, this year's winner of the Dean's Medal. 7 Noted neurosurgeon Benjamin Carson delivered the keynote address, and 8 bagpipers James Feeney, left, and Travis Matheney, right, both members of the DMS Class of 2000, lent a solemn note to the procession. But it was conviviality that ruled the day for 9 Dorothea Torti and Allen Tong, 10 M.D. class marshal Jamie Bessich, and 11 Loc Nguyen and Ted Yuo.
