Thank You for Your Support of the 2020 Celebration of Medical Education!

Thanks to everyone who attended the UCR School of Medicine's third annual Celebration of Medical Education on November 21, 2020. Proceeds from the event raised funds that support our Mission Award scholarship program.

The celebration featured fabulous musical performances by UCR undergraduate Karen Keonorasak '23 and musicology Ph.D. student Bob Bozonelos, a short video about the Mission Scholarship program, and a speech by medical student Marlene Alfaro '21 about the significance of the award. Our guests also had the opportunity to chat with our medical students to hear about their medical education experiences. A highlight video can be seen on our gala archive, and the full Mission Scholarship video is below.

We hope you will plan to join us for our 2021 event, tentatively scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 20, 2021. For more information, or do make a donation to the Mission Award scholarship program, please email
