About the SAHP Reunion
The School of Allied Health Professions hosted the first all-school reunion on July 19-20, 2013. The program included profession-specific events, continuing education, awards, lunch, and tours. The theme Allies Assemble, is a play on the blockbuster movie, The Avengers. Healthcare professionals are real-life superheroes – they analyze, diagnose, restore, discover, and heal every day. Our diverse team of allied health professionals are not unlike The Avengers, coming together to save the world. The SAHP Reunion will include the following professions: Clinical Laboratory Science (Celebrating the 75th anniversary of the program!), Clinical Perfusion Education, Cytotechnology, Medical Nutrition Education, Physical Therapy
Physician Assistant, and Radiation Science Technology Education.
