I am delighted to welcome you to the inaugural edition of InTouch Online. As packed full of news and stories as ever, we hope that this new platform will bring you closer to all the action taking place at King’s and throughout your global alumni community.
Work on this issue has taken place in some of the toughest times the world has faced, and our thoughts are with you all as we face these challenges together. In this issue we share with you how King’s is contributing to the global battle against COVID-19 and we ask you for your support so that we can extend the work we are already doing, and in addition support the most vulnerable students here at King’s.
