School of Nursing Breathing First Class Recap

A multi-generational group of seven School of Nursing alumni attended the class on June 29. Knowing that proper breathing is essential to good health, participants discovered how to optimize their breathing mechanics.

It was insightful and educational; a great opportunity for alumni to build their own breathing techniques that can easily transfer into their work with patients.”
– Kristi Runberg, B.S.N. ’12, Chapter VP of Membership

School of Dentistry Cantwell On The Road CE Courses Recap

Ten Central Oregon School of Dentistry alumni attended one of our in-person CE offerings on Friday, June 14. Alumni could attend New Technologies and Office Implementation Strategies or Hands-On Sedation Permitting, or both. The courses were offered in the offices of Eric Alston, D.M.D. ’13, School of Dentistry Representative for the Central Oregon Alumni Chapter.

“Dr. Alston and his office did an amazing job of assisting and hosting the event in their space…the event was a great success!”
– Ryan Bethke, OHSU School of Dentistry Continuing Education

School of Medicine Alumni Picnic Recap

Our School of Medicine alumni planned to come together for a family picnic on May 4 at Discovery Park, but the weather had other plans. So, we shifted our celebration to chapter leader James Dayton’s house and picnicked indoors. Unexpected rain couldn’t stop the fun for the 15 School of Medicine alumni and their families who shared food, drink, games and laughter. Thanks to all who pivoted with our change of plans and came out for an afternoon of fellowship!
