Letter from the Dean
Dear, Class of 2022!
You are called as the next generation of problem-solvers who will improve the health of individuals, communities, and systems of care. As Betty Parkinson, one of the School’s lead benefactors, said: “Bob and I believe that access to quality health care is a right, and good health is the foundation for strong families, individuals, and communities.” Thank you for being part of the solution.

The awards recognize how honorees are always striving to do better and truly achieve Magis. The Magis Awards recognize Parkinson graduates and their continual drive to learn more and be of service to the greater good. Exemplary undergraduate students will receive several prestigious awards and certificates. Family and friends are welcome to celebrate students’ accomplishments.
