Yale and City To Unveil Major Medical Research Complex To Be Built in New Haven's Hill Neighborhood by 2002
Q Dean David A. Kessler of the Yale School of Medicine and New Haven Mayor John DeStefano Jr. will be on hand Feb. 10 to unveil plans for a major medical research complex to be built in New Haven’s Hill neighborhood.
Where: Hill Regional Career High School Auditorium, 140 Legion Ave.
When: 11 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 10
What: Architectural drawings and a model of the building will be unveiled. Reporters and photographers also will visit the high school’s anatomy laboratory and meet students and their teacher, Shirley Neighbors. Working with Dr. William B. Stewart at Yale, Neighbors has made it possible for many of her students to attend Yale anatomy classes and to take exams similar to those given to first-year medical students.
The Congress Avenue building – the largest construction project undertaken by the University in several decades – is the centerpiece of a strategic facilities plan for the Yale School of Medicine resulting from a two-year planning process involving the University, the City and the community.
