Goldman School of Dental Medicine, and my wife Kathleen and I along with Kevin Holland, our Assistant Dean for Development & Alumni Relations; Kimberley Branca, our Director of Development; and Stacey McNamee, our Director of Alumni Relations & Annual Giving, look forward to working with each and every one of you as we go forward in our Fundraising Campaign,” said Dean Hutter.
