Traverse City Alumni Annual Reception

  • Traverse City Alumni Annual Reception City Opera House Traverse City, MI (map)

Thursday evening, October 27 beginning at 7:00 pm Our special guest and featured speaker will be Terri Taylor, internationally acclaimed MSU Distinguished Professor of Internal Medicine, osteopathic physician, and our very own Traverse City resident. Dr. Taylor works six-months each year leading a Michigan State University research team in a continuing effort to eliminate the scourge of malaria in the southern African nation of Malawi. She will debut an inspiring video showcasing the university’s outreach to this small, landlocked country. We’ll learn about the team’s uplifting anti-malaria care for patients, most of whom are children, and ongoing disease prevention strategies (the parasite kills as many at one million children in sub-Saharan Africa annually). MSU has been actively involved in malaria research in Malawi since 1985.
