50th Anniversary of Nurse Anesthesia Reception
For the first time, the Alumni Office is starting the tradition of highlighting one of our five graduate programs individually during the Alumni Reunion Weekend. The Nurse Anesthesia program will reach its 50th year in existence in 2020, so it only makes sense to invite NA alumni back to Columbia to help celebrate this momentous milestone! Join us for a casual reception to reconnect with old classmates and colleagues, as well as meet those who graduated from the program when it was a part of Richland Memorial Hospital.
