UND Homecoming 2019 at the SMHS

Fall. Football. Friends. All are in the air this time of year as colleges and universities across the country gear up for Homecoming celebrations of all sorts. The UND School of Medicine & Health Sciences is no exception, and will play host to a series of Homecoming 2019 events we hope you can attend. Whether you’re a legacy grad—’69, ’79, ’89, ’99, ’09—or not, we’d love to see you back in Grand Forks in October!

Friday, October 4, 2019, is the School’s big day as it hosts not only a daytime Continuing Education Symposium but a banquet later that evening:

Continuing Education Symposium
From 8:30 to 11:30 a.m., the “Oh, My Aching Back!” symposium will give participants of all health backgrounds an opportunity to increase their knowledge and skills in the treatment and rehabilitation of back injury. The complimentary symposium will be held in Room W202 of the School of Medicine & Health Sciences, 1301 N. Columbia Rd. Speakers from departments across the School, and some from outside UND, will be on hand to discuss the latest developments in lumbar injury. The event will provide participants with 2.5 educational credit hours.

Building Tours
Then, from 1 to 3 p.m., the Office of Alumni & Community Relations will host tours of the School of Medicine & Health Sciences building at 1301 N. Columbia Road. Tours will begin every 20 minutes in the School’s main Lobby and take approximately 30 minutes. No RSVP required.

Finally, the School will host a banquet for all SMHS alumni from 5 to 8 p.m. in the Grand Forks Hilton Garden Inn’s Buchli/Dahl Banquet Room. RSVP is required for the banquet as seating is limited. The Inn is located at 4301 James Ray Dr. in Grand Forks.
