The University of Illinois at Chicago College of Dentistry and its Office of Continuing Education are offering a new series of Thursday evening lectures, the "Alumni Connection" series, open to all dentists. All speakers are alumni of the College.
The installments of the series are scheduled to meet one Thursday evening per month, with a 7 p.m. lecture preceded by a 5:30 dinner and open bar. By adding a social element, the program's hosts hope to promote networking among alumni, other dentists, faculty, and students.
