On Wednesday, August 7, 2019, the Annual Welcome BBQ was held at the IU School of Medicine-Ft. Wayne campus to welcome new and returning students, along with faculty and area physicians and their families.   This fun and well-attended event was co-hosted by the Alliance and the medical school, along with sponsorship from the Fort Wayne Medical Society and SYM Financial Advisors. 

This year's theme was "Start Your Engines" complete with a pedal car race in the parking lot between med student teams!  Those in attendance enjoyed a delicious buffet that included the famous pulled pork and beef brisket BBQ made by Dr. Keith Davis, along with side dishes and desserts provided by Alliance members.  Race spectators enjoyed soft serve ice cream from the BrainFreeze ice cream truck as they cheered on their teams.

Our thanks goes to Medical School Liaison, Dawn Davis, and her committee (Liz Hathaway, Jennifer Bojrab, Betty Canavati), and the medical school for co-hosting another awesome event!  We also thank our sponsors and everyone who came out to the races!

Due to Covid-19, the 2020 Annual Welcome BBQ was canceled.  We look forward to resuming the event in 2021!
