Hey Bruins !!
Hope everyone has been hanging there! Thankfully we have a 3-day weekend coming up to catch up on sleep and de-stress from busy school work.
Before we going out and relaxing, we are lucky to have Amy Bugwadia to speak about Engaging in Pre-med Students and Healthcare Nonprofits/Advocacy. We will be learning how we, as future clinicians, can benefit from participating in these organizations. Here is an outline that Amy will be introducing:
- Pre-med students and healthcare nonprofits/advocacy – the benefits of engaging in these organizations (why it’s a win-win for future clinicians & patients)
- What is advocacy and what does it look like as a non-patient and future clinician, especially in this political climate?
- Crohn’s and Colitis (Inflammatory Bowel Disease, or IBD) – what it is and Amy’s involvement (a “case study” about what advocacy looks like)
- Psychosocial issues – how having a chronic invisible illness can affect patients, their caregivers, & clinicians and what we can do to combat this
The meeting will be THIS THURSDAY, 11/9 from 4-4:50pm in the ACKERMAN 2408. Hope to see you all there!
