Faculty of Medicine Homecoming Welcome Reception
Friday, October 4, 2019, 5 p.m.

Location: Canada Science and Technology Museum, 1867 St. Laurent Blvd., Ottawa
Admission: Free; registration is required

Reconnect with your classmates while examining medical artifacts from a century ago. Join us for a special discussion as we unpack a medical bag that once belonged to a distinguished Canadian physician. Undisturbed and unopened for more than 50 years, this bag has been loaned to uOttawa by the owner’s family for this unique event. During the panel discussion, we will explore the significance of the house call in history and its re-emergence today in the tech-driven health care landscape.

Speakers will include Dr. Susan Lamb, Hannah Chair in History of Medicine, Department of Innovation in Medical Education (DIME), uOttawa; and David Pantalony, PhD, Curator, Physical Sciences and Medicine, Canada Science and Technology Museum.

Location: Shaw Centre, Trillium Ballroom, 55 Colonel By Dr., Ottawa
Admission: $150 per ticket; registration required

Prepare to be inspired by the core elements of our universe, to shake your atoms, and to celebrate the magnificent work of the Faculty of Medicine community. On Saturday, October 5, join us for a special evening where you will be treated to a sit-down dinner, live entertainment, and an opportunity to mingle with some of the brightest minds in the country.

Our gala will take inspiration from the periodic table, which celebrates 150 years in 2019. From our first encounters with it in high school science class, to its practical uses in our labs and clinics today—the periodic table bonds us. This October, it lays the groundwork for what will most definitely be one of the best parties of the year.
