Graduation is always a memorable event and a high point of the academic year, but this year’s ceremony will be especially noteworthy. In addition to welcoming 89 outstanding new physicians into the medical profession, attendees will be treated to a commencement address by a very special guest speaker: Regina Benjamin, M.D., M.B.A., Surgeon General of the United States Public Health Service.
As the 18th U.S. surgeon general, Benjamin oversees the operational command of 6,500 uniformed health officers who serve around the world to promote, protect, and advance the health of the American people. Her commencement address to the class of 2010 will explore “What America Wants and What Society Needs in its Future Physicians.”
The graduation ceremony for the class of 2010 will take place in the Benjamin and Marian Schuster Performing Arts Center in Dayton. Admission is free and no R.S.V.P. is necessary.
