Exciting alumni news

August 30, 2009 —

I recently ran across this announcement of a five-year $2.8 million grant to a 1991 alum, Dr. Vincent Grasso. He is working on improving care for women with HIV/AIDS. Way to go, Dr. Grasso. Keep up the great work – we are proud of you!

And to read about the 3 alumni of the year, click here. We have so many amazing graduates; to be selected is a real honor!

If you’re an alum & want to see yourself or friends at the CHS golf outing, click here for pictures. And if you attended alumni reunion, keep watching this page for reunion photos hopefully soon!

Courtney Tompkins has been part of the DMU marketing team since Nov. 2005 and loves promoting a school she believes in so thoroughly. Proud daughter and patient of DMU alumni, Courtney knows, first-hand, that Des Moines University is doing a world of good. A fan of all outdoor festivals, fruity drinks and nearly all edibles, she has a hard time narrowing down her list of favorite places to go and things to do but lists the Iowa State Fair as an all-time fave. She loves her 8-minute commute to DMU from Urbandale, a suburb of Des Moines. She and husband Tyler are owned by three large dogs, Tonka, Tucker and Tank.
