I am delighted to introduce myself as the president of the Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School Alumni Association’s board of directors. I have served on the board the past five years, and am looking forward to continuing to build our alumni activities and strengthen the bond between our alma mater and all its alumni.
Among my goals are to help connect alumni with similar interests and offer more opportunities for social activities, as well as raise more funds for students. Sign up to mentor students, follow us on Facebook and Instagram, and update your email address to make sure you are receiving special alumni communications and invitations to events. For the time being, alumni communication is only being sent via email.
Alumni interested in mentoring students can sign up for the alumni-student mentorship program. As part of this initiative, a database was created so alumni near and far can identify the ways in which they would like to help current students—shadowing, researching, speaking at lectures, or providing resources for residencies and away rotations.
Looking forward to a great 2023 for alumni!
Perry Ritota, MD '89
President, Robert Wood Johnson Medical School Alumni Association
