Reunion Cancellation

Due to the ongoing health and safety concerns as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the MUNMed 2020 in person reunion will be cancelled for this year. As we progress towards a safer environment for gatherings, this event will be reconsidered in an effort to keep Memorial's MUNMed alumni connected.

We are  exploring the option of offering you a social zoom event as well as your accredited Continuing Professional Development (CPD) session delivered via an online platform. We envision these events happening on a weekend in the fall. The zoom event would take place on either Friday or Saturday evening and the CPD session would occur on the Saturday morning with 4-6 of our alumni delivering relevant topics and subjects that would be of interest to all.

We would love to gauge your interest in participating in these types of sessions. Please take a moment to answer two questions by clicking the reunion survey link.

If you have any questions, please contact Tracey Munden, development associate, at or (709) 864-6372.
