Kansas City Connection Luncheon with Dean Gregory Hand

You’re invited to join us and other WSU alumni and friends for lunch with Gregory Hand, dean of the College of Health Professions, to learn more about the state of health care in Kansas and how Wichita State is planning for the future.

As health care continues to move forward, Wichita State University, WSU Tech and the University of Kansas are at the forefront of health science and biomedical programs. A proposal to create a new biomedical campus by pooling the collective resources and successes of these institutions will bring about remarkable opportunities for collaboration, innovation and research. With a location in downtown Wichita near hospitals and healthcare providers, this campus will pave the way to develop partnerships in new and emerging research fields.

Sign up now to join fellow Shockers for a conversation on this exciting update.

11:45 a.m. – 1:15 p.m., Monday, April 24

Hereford House – Shawnee
