Ann S. Fulcher, M.D. Inaugural Speaker for "Who We Are" Series

“Who We Are” alumni speaker series offers students a sense of connection and a glimpse of the future

Richmond, VA - April 2021 - VCU School of Medicine Dean, Peter F. Buckley, M.D., recommended Dr. Ann Fulcher, M’87, H’91, as the series’ inaugural speaker for the "Who We Are" alumni speaker series because of her many career achievements – leading to her current position as chair of the school’s Department of Radiology – and her success as a photographer. 

Dr. Fulcher’s enthusiasm for her chosen specialty may have persuaded more than a few listeners to consider radiology. But she also acknowledged that because her focus for years was entirely medical, she didn’t get into photography until about a decade ago. That, she says, really opened up her world to others who think a different way.

The VCU School of Medicine alumni speaker series, “Who We Are,” kicked off February 2021 to bolster experiential learning during COVID-19. The series offers students a sense of connection and a glimpse of the future.
