Past Annual Alumni Celebrations

Thanks for joining the UIC School of Public Health community for a night of celebrating the achievements of fellow alumni, catching up with old friends and making new connections at the 2016 Annual Alumni Celebration held at the National Italian American Sports Hall of Fame. The evening included a networking reception, silent auction, dinner and awards ceremony.  Silent auction proceeds benefited the Student Travel Fund.
