Alumni Reception

UMBC50-Save the date

To celebrate UMBC’s 50th Anniversary, the Department of Emergency Health Services held a 50211 Alumni Reception after the EMS Today Convention events on Friday, February 26, 2016  at the Hyatt Regency.

We celebrated not only UMBC’s 50th Anniversary, but also the 21 years of Dr. Bruce Walz service as the Emergency Health Service Department Chair and welcomed our newest faculty member and incoming Chair, Dr. J Lee Jenkins, to our Emergency Health Services family.

We enjoyed meeting up with many of our current students, as well as, all our Alumni and friends.
If you would like to connect with the department, please check out our Facebook page for current events and connect with past classmates and other Alumni.
