Message from the Board of Directors

It is with great enthusiasm and excitement that I am serving as president of the University of Arizona College of Medicine - Tucson Alumni Board. Throughout my thirty-some years of medical practice, I have often reflected, with great appreciation, upon the education I received from the College of Medicine – an education that provided me with the strongest possible foundation for the successful and fulfilling career in medicine that I still enjoy today.

Warm regards,
Elaine Drobny, MD
Alumni Board President
