Did you know that the UVA Medical Alumni Association provides current UVA medical students with need-based reimbursement of medical conference expenses? These funds help students participate in exciting career opportunities. Recently, we were able to help Ilana Green, SMD'20, attend the International Stroke Conference in Los Angeles to present research she conducted at the School of Medicine with neurology faculty. She is seen here with one of her mentors, Andrew M. Southerland, MD. Learn more about our programs for students at UVAMedAlum.org/students.
