REVISIT DAY 2001

Medical Students to Stage Fashion Show and Auction

WHAT: Revisit Day 2001 gives potential members of the College

of Physicians & Surgeons (P&S) Class of 2005 a chance for a second

look before making the final decision to enroll.  Jennifer Thompson,

the Olympic gold medallist, is among the students attending Revisit Day

this year.  As part of the two-day program, P&S students will

stage a fashion show and auction.

WHY: Students will auction off 15 outfits designed by Peter “Jeff”

Nichols, a third-year P&S Student.  The outfits are created entirely

out of medical garb: scrubs, white coats, hairnets, surgical gloves, and

surgical masks.  Proceeds from the auction will benefit Operation

Smile, a program in which surgeons travel to developing countries and donate

their skills for maxillo-facial surgery (to repair cleft lit/palate, for

example).

WHEN:      TONIGHT, Thursday, April

26

7:00 p.m.
