In addition to honoring the four presidents, the event celebrated the past, present and future of the Health Science Center, with the unveiling of the university’s first history book “The Crown Jewel.” The book, which was authored by Will Sansom and designed by Jennifer Bernu-Bittle, staff members of the Office of External Affairs at the Health Science Center, is available for purchase through the University Bookstore.
