For Immediate Release

Members of the media are hereby invited to SMU-MEDUNSA Alumni Association (SMAA) Annual General Meeting (AGM) and a Class of 1988 Reunion. This premier event of the SMU will be held on Saturday 17 November 2018, at the Protea Hotel, Fire and Ice, Menlyn, from 17h00 to 23h00.

Young and old graduates who have studied, firstly, at MEDUNSA, then at MEDUNSA Campus of the University of Limpopo (UL) with which it was merged and lately as a stand-alone comprehensive health sciences university, will attend this event.

The highlight of the ceremony will be a keynote address by Dr Aaron Motsoaledi, the Minister of the National Department of Health, who is expected to shed more light on the state of National Health Insurance (NHI) and the role that the alumni should play in its implementation.

Alumni structures are statutory bodies that have been established in terms of the Sefako Makgatho Health Sciences University statute of 2016. Among other roles, alumni structures assist the university to establish networks of support to mobilise third stream sources of funding for the university, in the wake of declining budgetary allocation from government.
