Ust med class 67 medical mission project

Dear Classmates,

One of the projects proposed by the class is a medical mission to the Philippines. During the Mini-reunion in Chicago last fall, we presented and briefly discussed the options for this potential project. The following PowerPoint slides consisted of the presentation. Kindly, take a few moments of your time to review this slides, in preparation for our reunion and business meeting in Las Vegas. This will be in the meeting agenda for the class to discuss and act upon.

Thank you and please let me know if anyone has any questions.

Tony P,

Got your treatise, extensive as it is, …… All the best to your meeting and warmest regards to all. I am most confident the “Chicago Mob” will ensure an enjoyable and rewarding weekend for all of you. I remember vividly when I met them years ago for approval of the CME project. Not only was I treated well but also they turned the tide in support of the CME project. I will always be indebted to them.

Cheers to Class 67!
