Faculty and staff of the FoM shared good food and cheer at this past Friday’s Holiday Luncheon in the RGN Atrium.
Faculty dean Jacques Bradwejn invited all to join him in celebrating the year’s accomplishments and reflecting on the Faculty’s proudest moments. Welcoming guests in an opening address, Dr. Bradwejn emphasized his pride in the continued excellence the Faculty has displayed once again.
“Our rankings were outstanding this year,” Dr. Bradwejn remarked to the large crowd.
A delicious buffet of delicacies was laid out for all to savour and enjoy, and holiday punch was raised in a toast to the Faculty’s good work.
Those celebrating anniversary years with the University were honoured as part of the festivities. Dr. Rama Nair, Vice-Dean of Professional Affairs, presented awards to staff and faculty in recognition of milestone anniversaries from five to 35 years of service at uOttawa.
Party games brought out the social butterflies in guests and encouraged all to meet, mingle and make new acquaintances. Collegial spirit is highly valued in the Faculty of Medicine as staff and faculty work toward the common goals of continued excellence in research, service to students and education.
Faculty leaders met and chatted with the party-goers as they circulated in the crowd serving hors d’oeuvres and raffling prizes.
Emcee Matthew Armour fuelled the festive spirit with his colourful hosting throughout. His lively commentary entertained the crowd and ensured everyone enjoyed their afternoon of seasonal fun with friends and colleagues.
Happy Holidays to all!
