December 2019 Alumni Newsletter

On October 20th, 2019, Parker University was directly hit by a tornado. While no one was injured and we are very grateful for that, the main campus sustained enough damage to be closed for one week. During this one-week classes were held online. Many long hours of teamwork and dedication were put into operation. It is remarkable to be back up and running this fast. We still have a year and a half to go to rebuild and beautify our campus. To donate and help with rebuilding, visit the link below.

PBI Recognition Luncheon

As a group, our Practice-Based Internship (PBI) doctors have been increasingly impressed with the quality of the interns who have rotated through their offices. Our recognition luncheon with the CBI Department, Parker administrators, PBI doctors, and PBI interns was on Friday, November 22nd at Olive Garden.
