Spring Reunion 2020 Has Been Canceled Due to Coronavirus (COVID-19)
As a preventative measure against Coronavirus (COVID-19), Spring Reunion 2020, scheduled to take place April 24-26, has been canceled. This decision comes in accordance with and with guidance from Harvard University, which has placed restrictions on University-related domestic and international air travel and on events of more than 25 people. These restrictions are in effect at least through April 30.
We want to personally thank those alumni who were already registered to attend their Reunion. This was a very difficult decision but one we think is best at this time to protect the health and well-being of the HLS community, which is our top priority.
