Thank You for Your Support of the 2019 SOM Gala!

Thanks to everyone who attended the UCR School of Medicine's second annual Celebration of Medical Education Gala at the Riverside Convention Center in Downtown Riverside on November 23, 2019. Proceeds from the event raised funds that support our Mission Award scholarship program.

The Gala featured a reception, fabulous musical performance by Karen Keonorasak '23, a great dinner, a short video about the Mission Scholarship program (available below), and the drawing for our Maui Getaway Raffle, which was won by Shoaib Dadabhoy. You can check out our archive page or visit our photo gallery.

We hope you will plan to join us for our 2020 Gala, scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 21, 2020 at the Riverside Convention Center. For more information, or do make a donation to the Mission Award scholarship program, please email
