Alumni Association President's Message

Charles LuuMany of you know John Nishimoto, O.D., '87 - a pretty reserved guy. He's a good friend of mine AND he's also the Vice President and Dean of Interprofessional Health Studies at Marshall B. Ketchum University. So I was surprised recently to hear a very animated John say that he was passionate about helping to transform the College into a health sciences University. He's really energized! That's what this change into a University is doing to people - getting us to think big. Makes one proud to be an alumnus of such a forward-thinking institution, doesn't it? Hope to see many of you at the upcoming Shared Visions Gala and V-Awards where more details will be forthcoming.

- Charles Luu, O.D., '86, Alumni Association President, 2013-2015

P.S. John Nishimoto is happy to answer any questions you might have about the new programs.
