General Meeting

Home

Welcome!
Hello Pre-Health Students!
 
I would like to extend a warm welcome to the new and returning members of the Allegheny Pre-Health Club!  I appreciate your interest in the club, and I hope that we can work with you to serve your needs throughout the year.  On the third Thursday of every month at 6:30 pm in Quigley 101, we will have a general meeting consisting of club updates, committee meetings, and a speaker.

If you would like to be placed on the general club email list to be notified of meetings and important information, please contact Kathleen O'leary - Secretary (olearyk@allegheny.edu).

If you would like to join one of our committees, Community Service, Bioethics/Education, and Social, please contact Kathleen O'leary (olearyk@allegheny.edu) with your interest to be placed on a committee email list.

We have a lot of exciting events in the works for this year, including doctor panels, volunteer events and medical/dental school visits!  If you have any ideas for the club, please feel free to contact me (baronna@allegheny.edu) or any of the other executive board members. 

Let's make this a great year for the Allegheny Pre-Health Club!
 
Sincerely,

Ashley Baronner
APHC President
