Spotlight on Pitt in the Sunshine State
On Feb. 21, Pitt’s Alumni Association—along with the deans of the School of Education, Swanson School of Engineering, and the Joseph M. Katz Graduate School of Business—hosted a breakfast reception for alumni and friends in Naples. Chancellor Nordenberg joined alumni and other guests for remarks from Katz Dean John T. Delaney, Swanson Dean Gerald D. Holder, and Education Dean Alan M. Lesgold. Jeff Gleim, associate vice chancellor of alumni relations, emceed the affair.
Later that morning, about 500 guests, including alumni from various schools across Pitt, University friends, former or current UPMC patients, and Florida residents interested in the health sciences, attended Pitt’s 9th Annual Winter Academy in Naples. Hosted since its inception by School of Medicine Dean Levine, this year’s Winter Academy was titled “Above the Neck.” In addition to remarks from Dean Levine and Chancellor Nordenberg, the event included presentations by speakers from the School of Medicine’s Departments of Ophthalmology, Otolaryngology, and Neurology, who spoke about topics ranging from advances in vision and hearing technology to headache science and speech pathology.
