Minutes from 02/18/10 Meeting

Hey guys,

At our meeting on February 18th, we hosted MSgt Raymond Archambo of the US Air Force. He discussed medical school scholarships that the Air Force offers. They sound like a pretty nice deal, so if you are interested, the powerpoint presentation is available here!

Also, we will have a CPR/First Aid certification course on Thursday, March11th (next week) from 6:00PM-10:00PM in the Agricultural and Biological Engineering Building Rm. 100. While four hours may seem like a long time,the normal time for a class like this would be 8 hours. It will be completely free to you, so it is an opportunity that you should definitelytake advantage of! CPR certification will be first, so you can leave after that portion if you don't want to do the First Aid part. Please respond to our email to let me know if you will be attending so that we can get a better head count.

We will be going to tour the University of Mississippi School of Medicine in Jackson on Friday, April 9th. There will be a sign-up sheet for this at our March 25th meeting, but make sure to keep this date open if you would like to go. We would be more than happy to write you a letter for your teachers explaining how beneficial the trip will be if you need me to.

The AMSA t-shirt order has been placed. If you didn't put your name down on the list, don't fret because we have ordered a few extras that will be on sale at the next meeting for $12.

If you would be interested in touring the UAB and/or UT Memphis, please reply to our email and let us know. We will need at least 10 people to tour these medical schools.
