More details coming soon!

Annual Donor Appreciation Luncheon

All medical school donors were invited to attend a luncheon on Thursday, November 10, 2022, at the Radisson Plaza Hotel in downtown Kalamazoo. We honored our donors for their gracious support and commitment to the medical school. Students who attended were connected to their White Coat and Catalyst Scholarship donors who were in attendance at the luncheon. If you weren't able to attend, check out a video of the full event or take a look at a video of the highlights.

Individuals may choose to donate their body to WMed to be used in the advancement of medical science, teaching, and study.
