NEWS By Kate O’Neill 1 Career Night is 29 and counting! T he 29th Annual Career Night was a huge success. The Great Hall was filled with dedicated alumni ready, willing and able to counsel and advise the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School student body. Enjoying an informal dinner together and gathered around tables, mentors and mentees exchanged important questions and answers that can often prove to be invaluable. Advice was handed down across the generations, strengthening the bond between the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School alumni and alumni in the making. 1: Past and present Alumni Association leadership members (left to right) Len Jokubaitis, MD ’81; Deborah Saez-Lacy, MD ’86; Geza Kiss, MD ’95; Steven Krawet, MD ’89; Hank Lubin, MD ’83; Roberta Ribner; Eduardo Fernandez, MD ’89; Sonia Garcia Laumbach, MD ’99, President of the Alumni Association; Lois DeRitter, MD ’82; Paul Weber, MD ’87; Elena Frid, MD ’06; and Joseph Costabile, MD ’86; congratulate Roberta Ribner on her career as the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School Alumni Coordinator.
