Krispy Kreme Fundraiser #2!

Kripy Kreme Fundraiser! We will be doing another Krispy Kreme Fundraiser Wednesday, Feb 29th, of 8th week!

The first one was super fun and a success so we figured we would do it again! We will again be preselling donuts at $10/box, so ask around your lab, office, class, etc.

Please email if you would like to order a box. Super great: WE WILL DELIVER right to your hands on the 29th! We sold-out last time thanks to members helping us sell on library walk. We will make sure to buy PLENTY of doughnuts this time around, and sell all extras to freshman dorms at night.

If you are able to help out even if just for an hour please sign up on the following doodle to help sell doughnuts with us! As always, this counts as a clinic event.

Winter GBM – Week 7

Hi Flying Sams!

Need a break from all those midterms? Come to our GBM!

Our 2nd winter quarter GBM is coming up! The GBM will be next Wednesday, 2/22, at 8pm in the Dolores Huerta Room, near the old student center. The meeting should be great! Princeton Review will be coming and raffling off some books and providing information for personal statements for grad school! If you plan on applying this year, you should start writing your personal statement NOW-and this will be very informative for you!

We are excited to have Crystal Rubin, a registered nurse come and talk about her path to becoming a nurse and volunteer experiences. She will also be giving a vitals “how-to” so that all member can effectively run the vitals station at clinic! We will have tutorials on heart rate, blood pressure, blood glucose, temperature, etc. So come learn how to take a blood pressure and blood glucose levels! (dont worry, we will have oranges to prick instead of skin)

Hope to see you there! As always, the GBM counts as an event for clinic eligibility-make sure to sign in when you get there.

SDSU Clinic Trip

Hi everyone!

SDSU will be holding their next clinic trip on Saturday, Feb 11th. As part of our collaboration with them, we are pleased to send a car-full of UCSD students to visit their clinic.Their clinic has a great connection with the community, their trips are very fun, and members who are selected to go on this trip will benefit from gaining more diverse experience with different low-resource interventions. There’s more than one way to run a clinic in Mexico!

Besides event participation (including committee participation and all events up to the taco fundraiser Feb 3rd), Spanish speakers and drivers will also be given priority.

You will receive notification by Sunday night, Feb 5th whether or not you have been selected. If you have not been selected for this trip, you will be eligible for selection for the UCSD Feb 18th trip (sign ups to come next week). So go ahead, apply away!
