CHAPTER SHOUT OUT
This month’s Chapter Shout Out goes to KCUMB-COM!

The KCUMB-COM Student Association of the ACOFP was busy during November. The Chapter held a joint meeting with their school’s Emergency Medicine Club, where a guest speaker discussed his experiences in wilderness medicine. He spoke about the opportunities available for family medicine physicians, and also informed students about his experiences practicing medicine in areas affected by disasters. Members also engaged their community through a volunteer experience at a local soup kitchen, the Kansas City Community Kitchen. Students helped prepare food and serve the kitchen’s clients. The Chapter’s Executive Board continues to be successful by meeting frequently. This month they discussed upcoming speakers, and also designed t-shirts for fundraising.

Great job, KCUMB-COM!
