Hi Everyone!

We will be giving our last updates for the year, goals for next year (including help with planning our $10,000 dentistry grant!), introducing the new board, talking about some open positions where you can get invovled, and importantly our Sungod booth on Friday!

At the end of meeting, we will all help decorate our posters for the booth. Hope to see you there!

GBM and Pizza Social! 8PM April 11, 2012

Just a reminder that the GBM is WEDNESDAY at 8pm in the Earl Warren Room in PC (3rd floor above the food court)! However, due to the possible rain, we are changing the social from a bonfire and instead having a pizza social right after the GBM!. We will be providing the pizza!

See you all tomorrow!

***Also: Remninder that officer applications are due THIS FRIDAY! 4/13. If you have any questions regarding the positions, we encourage you to attend the GBM and ask any of the current officers. The application and descriptions are attached.

Winter GBM 2 Powerpoint Slides!

Thank you for all who could come to our last GBM (we know it was hard for a lot of you with midterms scheduled)!

We would especially like to thank our guest speaker, Crystal Rubin!  We had a great time learning how to measure blood pressure, take someone’s temperature, and examine one’s blood sugar levels!

For those of you who couldn’t make it or for those who want a reminder of what was went over last night, here is the link for the GBM slides:

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.
