Staying Connected to Hennepin Healthcare
The Hennepin Honorary Alumni Society was established in 2015. This special affinity society is made up of medical staff alumni. The purpose of this society is to maintain allegiance and support of the important mission at Hennepin Healthcare. Support is achieved through creating and sustaining philanthropy and giving to Hennepin Healthcare, comradery, meetings, news and updates, and social connections.

Rise Program for Residents
As HHA members, we ask that you model support for our philanthropic goals by giving. A campaign that may especially resonate with you is the Resident Integrated Support Environment (RISE), which addresses the mental, financial, and physical health needs of residents by offering integrated support.

Inaugural Social a Success!
Thank you to everyone who attended our inaugural social gathering on September 21. The combination guest list of HHA members, current medical staff leadership, and medical residents inspired stimulating conversations and new and rekindled connections.
We experienced first hand accounts on the value of the RISE program, so generously funded by this membership, and were reminded to contact Fred Landendorf with any interest in teaching and mentoring opportunities. Both subjects are covered below on this webpage.
