Recap of Events and Weekly Newsletter 12/2

Hi there!

WE CORDIALLY INVITE YOU TO OUR HOLIDAY PARTY!

Holiday Party Flyer

Just wanted to give you a quick recap of last week’s events!

The CU AMSA Bioethics Committee speaker event with Dr. Rita Charon on “Narrative Medicine & Bioethics” attracted a large crowd in Hamilton 404! Many of the students who attended came up to us afterward and told us that the session had been been truly inspiring. Dr. Charon (& the CU AMSA Bioethics Committee) has that effect on people! To get involved in our Bioethics committee, come to their weekly committee meetings on Mondays from 8:30pm-9:30pm in Hamilton  401!

The CU AMSA Public Health Committee tradition “FINALS MENTAL HEALTH” went “SMASHINGLY!” Pictures and video below.
