1. Student Run Homeless Clinics (L3s and L4s)
Hey L3s and L4s,
Every year, the LSU Student-Run Homeless Clinics rely on third and fourth year medical students to operate. If you’d like to volunteer, please use this link to sign up for Thursday clinics at the New Orleans Mission or Saturday clinics at Ozanam Inn. Our primary concern right now is scheduling volunteers for this week, however you can go ahead and sign up for any future clinics this semester if you’d like. You do NOT have to have previously volunteered at either of the SRHCs to volunteer now. Feel free to contact us at the emails below with any questions about the clinics.

3. Women in Medicine (WIM) Meeting TOMORROW
Our first WIM (Women in Medicine) meeting will be Monday, August 25th from 12-1 PM (during lunch) in MEB S8. Lunch will be provided! Final menu decision has not been made as of now, but we have narrowed it down to either Felipe’s or some of Rouse’s delicacies, AKA non-pizza menu! Speakers will include Dr. English, Dr. McGoey, Dr. Lo, Dr. Polite, Dr. Holman, and Dr. McLean. It will be more of an interactive meeting where we will be encouraged to ask them all various questions about life in medicine as a woman (obviously), e.g. balancing home life and work life, when they felt the best time to have children was, how do they share home duties with their significant other, etc. Having attended the meeting last year, I found that this meeting was very insightful, definitely a great one to attend!
Hope to see y’all there!

If attending, please respond to this survey so we can get a head count for food: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/YF3HDDV
This year, dues will be $20. Please make the check out to LSUHSC PMRIG. You can either bring the check to the meeting or put it in my folder (Cristina Terhoeve) on the L2 side.
For those of you who aren’t quite sure what exactly PM&R is, here is a quick summary:
PM&R is a medical specialty that arose to address the functional needs of patients. Commonly referred to as the “quality of life” specialty, the main focus of the field is to help patients achieve the highest level of function that an acute injury, chronic illness, or disability will allow. The specialty addresses many different issues and aspects of patient care such as musculoskeletal, neurologic, cardiopulmonary, and psychosocial disorders.
Any questions? Email Cristina Terhoeve at email@example.com
Hope to see you there!
