This quarter saw a string of well-attended alumni events. Two of the highlights were:
A discussion on human memory
In January, Dr. Syed Iqbal Raza, former chair of USEFP’s Board of Directors and a prominent Humphrey alumnus, led a talk at the Fulbright house titled ‘Storage of Human Memory and Intellectual Property’. Centered around his latest research paper on the potential of cochlear implants to store human memory, the session included a dynamic discussion about ethical implications and fruitful exchange of ideas. It was attended by Humphrey alumni and medical professionals and researchers.
In March, the alumni department hosted Fulbright Connect – a series of networking events and alumni reunions across six cities – to give Humphrey, Fulbright, and FLTA alumni an opportunity to meet each other, USEFP team members, Pakistan-U.S. Alumni Network (PUAN) representatives, and U.S. Embassy personnel. The events are scheduled through April and 550 alumni from Lahore, Karachi, Quetta, Islamabad, Gilgit, and Peshawar have registered for them.
