“The Mentorship Program, which was established to connect alumni around the world, is working very well. I have had the opportunity to mentor three alumni in the healthcare sector. The program is easy to use and the follow up communications have been excellent to assure that both parties are receiving the full benefit of the program. Very well done. I have been a very pleased participant!”
