2003 has been an incredible year for the College of Medicine, and I want to thank all of you, faculty, staff and students, for your hard work and dedication. I also want to extend to you and your family my warmest regards this Holiday Season, and to encourage you to enjoy yourselves and the richness this Season offers.
Next year is shaping up to be another signature time in the College's history. I hope that you, like me, look forward to the challenges, successes and celebrations 2004 undoubtedly has in store for all of us.
So, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and Happy Kwanzaa. You've earned it. And here's to a great New Year!
