I hope everyone has settled down and gotten into the swing of things now that school is well underway. The Meet and Greet turned out great; we have had five first years sign-up so far, bringing our total to eighteen. Be sure to let your med school friends know that it isn’t too late to sign-up.
SAA is going to be busy in the next coming months so hopefully you can find plenty of activities to be involved with. The first meeting will be on Tuesday, September 8th at 6:00 pm in the OMM Lab. We have a special guest speaker, Dr. Mark Thai, who will be demonstrating OMM techniques and discussing the differences between a DO and a MD. This is a great way to get more acquainted with the other members and the first years will undoubtedly go home with more OMM skills than their students. Childcare will be provided.
This month we also have a Vice President’s Welcome Luncheon, a zoo play day, and a social night out at Dave and Buster’s. Be sure to sign-up with the Google Calendar so you can keep track of all the great things we are doing. Next month we will have two big events--the Oktoberfest parking fundraiser and Spookoween.
I need a volunteer to help Ginny and Beverly Harjo with the All School Thanksgiving Dinner and I need someone to help with the Spookoween night. Remember, involvement will allow us to get to know each other better, show the school and community how dedicated we are to the Osteopathic profession and it makes the time go by faster! Hope to see you soon.
