Join us after the second GBMs to tie ribbons around trees at UIC for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This event will take place of the card making for the month. It should take no longer than 30 minutes after the GBM.
Shadowing through SFP:
We have just selected the Clinical experience committee which means there will be shadowing opportunities available soon! If you plan on shadowing anytime in an operating room, you must have a hospital badge and updated immunizations! Both of these can be easily obtained by being a volunteer at UI Health. 15 points will be awarded if you attend the new volunteer orientation at UI Health this semester! Email TLung2@uic.edu with proof of this! If you are not a volunteer you can apply here: https://hospital.uillinois.edu/patients-and-visitors/international-medicine-unpub/volunteer-services
Pre Medical Update:

75 Point No Show Penalty
This is an opportunity to present on research, volunteering, shadowing or anything else medical related to all active members. You can focus on one item or it can be a compilation of everything you are involved in. This should be medical related, and take no more than 5 minutes. You must prepare a google slides presentation after you are selected. If selected you will receive an email from TLung2@Uic.edu by Saturday October 18th.
