As part of the Upstate Foundation’s initiative to engage emeritus faculty members, a brunch was held recently to give retirees the opportunity to reconnect with longtime friends and colleagues, and listen to remarks by Dr. Mantosh Dewan, interim president of Upstate Medical University. The 19 emeriti in attendance accounted for a total of 719 years of service to Upstate, three of whom worked for more than 50 years before retiring. One former faculty member is turning 97 at the end of the month. Eleven different departments were represented.
