Alumni Weekend 2020

Alumni Weekend

October 8 – 10, 2020

A Message from Dean Patricia Davidson:

When the World Health Organization declared 2020 the Year of the Nurse and Midwife, we looked forward to moments of celebration and times of joy throughout the year. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has brought challenges and uncertainty. COVID-19 has cemented an understanding of the importance of nurses and highlighted their courage in healing the sick and protecting the most vulnerable. I have never been prouder to be a nurse or to be the Dean of Johns Hopkins School of Nursing.

Building upon the foundation laid by generations of Hopkins nurses, every day we strive to elevate the nursing profession and face challenges with leadership and compassion. Our alumni are at the heart of what we do. Your legacy strengthens our foundation and pushes us to the forefront of nursing education, research, and practice. I look forward to opportunities each year to engage with alumni, and to hear your stories, contributions and aspirations. And every fall, I of course look forward to Alumni Weekend festivities. 

This year has not been what we have expected, but as nurses, we adapt. The health and wellbeing of our community is our focus and for that reason, we have decided to cancel all in-person Alumni Weekend activities scheduled for October 8-10, 2020. Like all of you, I will miss the conversations and celebrations that reunion brings. However, I hope that brighter days are ahead and you will be able to join us in-person for fall 2021 Alumni Weekend.

In this new normal, I am thankful for the technology that still allows us to connect. While we cannot replicate the special experiences and memories that Alumni Weekend brings, I hope that our virtual alumni events strengthens your bond with fellow alumni and deepens your Hopkins pride. Please look for more details on a virtual alumni event that will take place during the originally scheduled Alumni Weekend (October 8-10, 2020). If you would like to arrange an online event for your class or if you have any suggestions on virtual programming, please contact Katie Damaroda, Director of Alumni Relations, or 410-955-4285.

During these difficult times, I hope that you and your loved ones are doing well and staying healthy. I look forward to the days ahead when we can peacefully gather to celebrate your milestone class reunion, in the meantime remember - #WeGotThis.
