2. Week 3, Tuesday April 16th Early Bird Flyering

Get some clinic points by putting flyers on the backs of the seats of lecture halls,  Tuesday morning, April 16th 7AM meet in front of Geisel for tape and little flyers! Contact Jenny Xiao (mexiao@ucsd.edu) if you are interested.

Please note: Due to the nature of this event, people who sign up and who fail to show up without notice will have lowered chances of attending clinics. But, those who do show as promised will receive additional consideration.

3. Week 3, Wednesday April 17th GBM #1

We will be having our second GBM of the quarter on Wednesday night, April 17th at 8-9:30PM at the Dolores Huerta Room.

We will be teaching Spanish used in the clinic, with the help of Spanish speaking officers of the club. Come learn some very basic Spanish and practice taking vitals or taking labs from Spanish speaking patients.

 Looking for easy clinic points? Follow the instructions here (https://www.facebook.com/events/116170138538754/?fref=ts) to link your Ralphs card (or your friend’s, or your family’s) to Flying Sams so that every time it’s used we get a donation. You can use your phone number and if you don’t know what zip code/last name your card is registered with, go to http://ralphsrewards.com to register it online. Get your friends and family in on it too to support our work! You need to email an image of your receipt to our secretary, Amy (phan_q_amy@yahoo.com) to get clinic points.
