University of Washington

We have assisted with “Dr for a Day” events in our community, where HS-age kids are able to
learn suturing, auscultation and taking BP.
We have a strong relationship with our CCM (Chicanos for Community Medicine) chapter and
have held networking, medical skills and potluck events with them. We even paid to bring ~20 of
them to the last 2 LMSA National Conferences.
Some of the networking and potluck events are attended by senior medical students, residents
and even attending physicians. This gives us a chance to receive advice and encouragement.
