Mandatory Volunteer Orientation

Because completion of training at our 5 workshop stations will be mandatory in winter quarter and provide priority on trips through fall quarter, we will be holding 2 make-up volunteer orientations.

The first, this Thursday 11/16 will be held at 7 pm, @ Biomedical Library Room 203-205 and 214. The second will be held 12/2. For all those who completed their requirement at GBM 2, thank you for coming out!

Points for those who completed 5/5 stations are being updated now, and being considered for the upcoming clinic trip.

Check back at ucsdflyingsams.com starting Monday night to see the posted list and check if you have any workshops to complete or if there were issues uploading your clinic point.

Clinic Report: October 28, 2017 @ Ensenada

Coordinator:  Shaddy Malik

Patients seen: 22

We had an early car leave at 5:30 to head down to set up the clinic. The other 3 cars for volunteers met on campus at 5:30 and we left around 6:00, took one bathroom break after toll B, and arrived at the clinic at around 8:30 am. With the 4 providers, we were able to see 22 patients in total before leaving at 3:50 pm. We ate at the usual taco shop and left for the border around 5:30 pm. The border took about 30 mins for the 2 cars that went through the ready lane, and 1 hour and a half for the all traffic cars. By the time all cars crossed and got back to campus it was 10:00 pm.

Door of Club Sign-Up Opportunity

Take five minutes to join Door of Clubs at https://www.doorofclubs.com/join/flying-samaritans

Although our flash sign-up period has ended, you can still benefit from this opportunity and play a part in helping Flying Sams raise funds . Check out below for more information! Flying Sams still has a chance to earn $500 for free if 100 members sign up.

How this helps you:
Door of Clubs connects students to job and internship opportunities with organizations like Bank of America, CVS Health, Amazon, UPS, Disney, the White House, Lenovo, and many more. Participants fill out their account after signing up with Flying Samaritans with information like academics, skills, employers you want to see you, and resumes to establish whether you fit certain hiring criteria. The platform then makes people visible to employers searching for a particular type of applicant, so you have a direct line to companies and their hiring teams. Door of Clubs does NOT send your personal information (birth dates, emails, addresses) to anyone unless a third party you approve of reaches out to you with an invitation and you choose to accept it. Find more information under Career Opportunities or Privacy at https://www.doorofclubs.com/faq.

How this helps us:
We can still get $500 just for getting 100 sign ups! This fundraised money will help us better serve our patients at the Ensenada clinic. With these funds, we can replace and buy more medical machines/tools (ex. glucose testing).

In addition, if you belong to an org and want to get set up with funding through door of Clubs, we can give you a referral link so we both benefit! The money earned through your participation in this flash- fundraiser is free for everyone involved, and will go toward helping us to get medications and critical health screenings at no cost to a low-resource community in Mexico, who cannot always access these services for themselves. Please feel free to learn more about all that your support helps us do by visiting ucsdflysams.com
