UIWSOM presents Tricentennial Celebration Heritage Reunion

October 6, 2018

Reunion to celebrate history of the Brooks Community

San Antonio – The University of the Incarnate Word School of Osteopathic Medicine (UIWSOM) is proud to present the 2018 Heritage Reunion in honor of San Antonio’s Tricentennial. The reunion will be held Saturday, October 13, 2018 at  on the UIWSOM campus (7615 Kennedy Hill Dr.,78235) from 8:30 a.m. – 3 p.m. Special guest for the event is San Antonio District 3 Councilwoman, Rebecca Viagran.

In late 2017, UIW’s Dean of the School of Osteopathic Medicine, Dr. Robyn Madson, was asked to consider a way for UIWSOM to participate in the year-long 300th anniversary celebration of the City of San Antonio. Dr. Madson considered the campus SOM sits on and decided to honor the men and women who once worked at Brooks’ US Air Force School of Aerospace Medicine and all those who have played a role in the historical significance of the Brooks campus with a special reunion.  

The event will begin with a VIP Reunion Breakfast in honor of those who served at Brooks and the leadership of the School of Aerospace Medicine at 8:30 a.m. After the breakfast, the community is invited to attend an event beginning at 10:30 a.m. that will feature guided tours of the KBRWyle labs and UIWSOM facilities and screenings of the 1927 film, Wings, as well as the documentary film, The Story of Brooks.

This event is free and open to the public.
