Pinning Ceremony 2019

On May 5, UF BME recognized the hard work of our students with a graduation reception and pinning ceremony at the UF Health Professions, Nursing and Pharmacy Complex to celebrate the new class of bachelors graduates. Faculty, staff, family and friends all gathered to recognize the 89 students in this year’s class.

The program consisted of messages from Dr. Christine E. Schmidt, J. Crayton Pruitt Family Chair and department chair, Dr. Daniel Ferris, Robert W. Adenbaum Professor and senior associate chair, Dr. Lakiesha Williams, associate professor and Dr. Sarah Rowlinson, lecturer and undergraduate coordinator.

BME graduate Sara Galbraith was selected to serve as the 2019 class speaker and gave a heartfelt address during the ceremony.

The program concluded with the much-anticipated pinning ceremony in which the graduates received a special department pin to recognize their alumni status. These custom-designed pins recognize our graduating students for their achievements and serve as a guiding reminder of excellence and research to improve human health.
