Battle of the Bands
Saturday, March 11th @The Republic
6:45-11 pm (first 50 people get Koozies)
$10 at the door
FOR THE KIDZ!!
FELLOW COMRADES AT ARMS!
The Battle of the Bands is upon us. Next Saturday, March 11th, the glorious competition of music and harmony is once again before us to Kick A** and fundraise for Camp Tiger. All of the proceeds of the event go to Camp Tiger, and we have traditionally been the largest donating student group and we’d like to do even better this year. It takes place at the REPUBLIC 6:45 -11 PM, but the first 50 people in the door get limited edition SIGMA koozies (see attached photo). You’ll really want to come because some bands might have some VERY familiar faces as guest appearances.
There is a required donation of $10 dollars at the door, but it’s for the Kids. Also, we want you to bring as many people as you want: friends, family, teachers, bae’s, anyone! And please share the event on facebook (https://www.facebook.com/events/605408629661730/ ).
Rock on, comrades. Rock on!
- Psychiatry Meeting
The psych interest group is pleased to host Dr. Erich Conrad at our meeting this March 13 at noon in MEB S14. As an expert in electroconvulsive therapy, Dr. Conrad will give a brief overview of the ethics behind this controversial treatment before facilitating a discussion of its modern use.
This event will have free lunch for ALL attendees – not just interest group members – due to a generous contribution from the Department of Psychiatry! To confirm your spot for free lunch, please fill out this survey by March 9 at 4pm: https://goo.gl/forms/DT04RW8J2GIaCz8k2
Contact Robby firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or specific dietary needs.
- PMRIG Meeting
There will be a PMRIG meeting on March 13th at noon in MEB S5.
Please use the survey link below to nominate up to two medical students who embody the ideals of integrity, service, respect, and empathy. Members of the Gold Humanism Honor Society will then vote among the nominees to select two students from each class as Students of the Month. This is a great way to recognize classmates who go above and beyond! Email Julie at email@example.com for any questions or problems.
Hey L3s and L4s,
Every year, the LSU Student-Run Homeless Clinics rely on third and fourth year medical students to operate. Starting this semester, we have officially changed the New Orleans Mission clinics to Saturdays instead of Thursdays. Ozanam Inn clinics are still on Saturdays from 10am-2pm. New Orleans Mission clinics will now be on Saturdays from 1-4pm. If you have already signed up for a Thursday clinic this semester, we apologize for the inconvenience. If you’d like to volunteer, please use this link to sign up. 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.
Heather Valdin, Ozanam Inn Clinic Director (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Max Musharoff, New Orleans Mission Director (email@example.com)
- Cancer Resource Room
Please sign up to be a volunteer for the Cancer Resource Room! (SLE approved!)
