Recently, the program conducted a census of the program's 220 alumni. To date, 70% of the alumni (n=154) have responded to the survey. As illustrated below, this means 66 individuals are on our most "Wanted" list! If you are an alumnus and did not complete the census survey, we’d love to hear from you! If you know other program alumni, ask them if they have filled it out! Our goal is to reach an 85% response rate!
