2007 graduates honor classmate
Room dedication to honor the memory of Matt Smith, MD ’07
The 2017 UF College of Medicine Alumni Weekend, held Sept. 15-16, provided opportunities for alumni to reconnect and remember the relationships they built during their time as medical students.
In a cozy nook near the third-floor staircase of the George T. Harrell, MD, Medical Education Building, a group of alumni, family and friends from the UF College of Medicine class of 2007 gathered Saturday to honor the memory of Matt Smith, MD ’07. Classmates dedicated the space to Smith, who passed away at 37 from the rare bone cancer Ewing’s sarcoma last September. The nook houses a table and four chairs, and a plaque on the wall commemorates Dr. Smith.
