40th Anniversary Party - June 17th & 18th, 2016 

Class of 1981

Bone with the Class of 1981 at the zoo!

The 40th Anniversary of the first graduating class was held on Friday and Saturday June 17-18, 2016. The different events were well attended with alumni from around New Mexico as well as many other states including Colorado, Oklahoma, California, Texas, Michigan, Oregon, Hawaii, Florida and North Carolina in attendance.

Friday afternoon included a tour of north campus with visits to the helipad, the Disaster Management Team, the Interprofessional Healthcare Simulation Center and the Office of the Medical Investigator. Friday evening, Chad Cook presented “The Best Stand Alone Tests for Differential Diagnosis” in conjunction with the Class of 2016’s poster presentations. Saturday started with a tour of the PT program, including both classrooms, the anatomy lab, the memory garden and the Motion Analysis Lab. Saturday evening we had 180 people signed up for dinner at the zoo. Several classes also had their own “class reunion” with separate dinners and events to catch up with their classmates.

The two surviving members of the first class (Barbara Bradley Fuller and Brad Bowman) attended the dinner and in addition to being honored as the first graduating class, they also received an award for having the highest percentage of the class in attendance with 66%! Many fun awards were also given out including one to Heather Murray (Class of 1984) for the longest distance driving to attend the party (from Florida); Pam Moen Adams (Class of 1994) for flying from Hawaii; Paul Mohr (Class of 1993) won an award for having a patent for the GivMohr sling and Sahreem Luergan (Class of 2000) won for being the most recently married!

The faculty and staff enjoyed seeing (and hearing from) our past graduates. The UNM Division of Physical Therapy has graduated many amazing clinicians who have and are contributing to the profession of physical therapy across the country and around the world.

The Anniversary Party was a wonderful success celebrating the Division of Physical Therapy graduating outstanding physical therapists since 1976! Check out and download the pictures
