CHAPTER SHOUT OUT
June was a month full of community service for VCOM-Virginia. Chapter President, Tori Tschantz planned multiple volunteer activities for students to participate in over the summer. A Wagons and Wheels event was held in which VCOM students helped educate local kids about safety, health and community resources. They manned a face painting booth and helped the children create their own first aid kits. Chapter members also volunteered their time at the Methodist Church food pantry by distributing food and then carrying those items to the community member's cars. The SAACOFP chapter participated in service to their fellow classmates by holding mock practicals for both OMM and Anatomy in order to prepare student's for their practical finals as the school year came to an end. Lastly, VCOM students joined with the SAAO and the Hispanic Community Medical Outreach Club to provide general health screenings, OMM education and treatment to their local Hispanic community. Student's took vitals and offered general health assessment measures which provided the bonus opportunity for students to practice their medical Spanish.
Keep up the great work and wonderful community service, VCOM-Virginia!
