Making Your Impact - CMS Reunion

This campaign ended on November 01, 2022, but you can still make a gift to Rosalind Franklin University by clicking here!

We hope you can join us to celebrate your milestone reunion, connect with classmates, and meet CMS Dean Archana Chatterjee, MD, PhD on September 16 and 17. This is our first in-person event since 2019, and we are inviting all classes whose celebrations occurred in 2020, 2021 and 2022 to join the festivities. REGISTER TODAY!

As we come together to celebrate your reunion we invite you to honor this occasion with a gift to support current and future CMS students.

By making a class reunion gift, you will make an immediate impact and empower a new generation of medical professionals who will go on to lead in interprofessional health care. For the last century, Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science has worked in collaboration with partners, like you, to improve lives for the better. Together, we are ensuring that we will continue to shape the future of health care for the better.

Inspire Others! Consider creating a CHALLENGE for your classmates, or make a MATCH for your classmates. Both CHALLENGES and MATCHES are easy and rewarding.

​Special Reunion Matching Gift Opportunity for members of CMS Classes of 1980, 1981, 1982: Agnes D. Lattimer, MD '54 Memorial Endowed Scholarship Matching Gift Challenge

The Agnes D. Lattimer, MD '54 Memorial Endowed Scholarship Matching Gift Challenge was created by an anonymous donor who offers members of the CMS Classes of 1980, 1981 and 1982 the opportunity to contribute to this endowed fund by matching dollar for dollar donations of $1,000 or more.   

Agnes D. Lattimer was the first woman and African American to be named a CMS Distinguished Alumnus. She faced the triple obstacles of poverty, sexism, and racism, yet she refused to be discouraged. As she said, 

"No obstacles could deter me from my purpose. Not the negative attitudes of others, not lack of money, nor lack of encouragement from outside my family; nothing could dissuade me from my goal." 

Dr. Lattimer, who passed away in 2019, entered CMS in 1950 as one of only two women and the only African American in her class. Lack of financial resources had forced her to turn down acceptance at a medical college in her home state of Tennessee. She then came to Chicago and worked as a housekeeper for 18 months to earn enough money to attend CMS. Dr. Lattimer spent her more than three-decade career as a board certified pediatrician and physician executive leading systemic change in the medical treatment of Chicago’s poor.

To make your match-qualifying gift to the Lattimer Memorial Endowed Scholarship that removes barriers to education, promotes diversity in our classrooms and fuels the drive toward a medical culture that better represents a multicultural society, click here.
