We are excited to announce that Hank Farrar, M.D. has accepted the invitation to serve as our department’s inaugural Director of Alumni Affairs and Outreach starting July 1, 2023.
In this new role, Hank will construct and maintain a robust alumni database consisting of former residents, fellows and faculty so we can all stay more connected. He will oversee a dedicated new section on our DOP website and also publish a quarterly newsletter to update everyone about departmental events and alumni news. In the near future, we will develop an exciting UAMS Department of Pediatrics Alumni Weekend to showcase the accomplishments within the Department, introduce new faculty, connect with new faces and reconnect with friends and colleagues.
There’s more to come about this in the months ahead, and we are delighted that Hank’s vast institutional knowledge and connections to the legions of trainees he led will be leveraged in this new Director role. Please congratulate Hank on this new position.
This is also a major step forward in our department’s growth as we expand our reach and reconnect with faculty and trainees who have gone on to represent the Department in hospitals and clinics across the country.
