Letter from the Editor-in-Chief
My name is Jeff Navarro and I am honored to be your new Editor-in-Chief. I'd like to welcome you to this new semester and give you some insight into our goal for the upcoming couple of months.
Our main focus is to expand our readership around the campus and to maintain the MCPHS student body informed, engaged, and entertained. From interviews, to poems, and opinion pieces, we aim to reflect the diversity of our student body and its wide-range of talent.
This is where you, our readers, are integral. We'd like your feedback and opinions and welcome any submissions you may have. Whether one reports on forum, conference, or a university-sponsored event, we'd like you to have a voice and this newspaper to be the means to achieve that.
If you have any interesting stories you'd like to share or are interested in being a part of the newspaper; let us know!
From the team behind The Dispenser, we wish you an excellent semester!

Schwartz Rounds 2015

LGBTQ and Compassionate Care
The Schwartz Rounds
29 October 2015
Reed Hall (W204)
Students and faculty are invited and encouraged to attend this semester’s Schwartz Rounds, scheduled for October 29th, 2014 in Reed Hall (W204) during Activities Hour. A free box lunch will be provided to the first 300 attendees on a first come, first served basis. This semester’s presentations explore the way in which a person’s sexual identification affects how they deliver health care or affects whether they receive compassionate care. During each Rounds, student panelists describe experiences related to the theme. Then, audience members have an opportunity to ask questions of the panelists or share their own experiences. The Rounds, founded by the Schwartz Center for Compassionate Care, are an opportunity for students and faculty to explore the social and emotional issues associated with patient care – critical parts of patient-centered care. Over 300 healthcare organizations host Schwartz Rounds; MCPHS University is one of only 5 schools selected to host Schwartz Center Educational Rounds.

The Italian club had a very successful first event of the year on October 10th, when we participated in the Light the Night walk for the Leukemia and Lymphoma society. We came in 11th overall, in college team fundraising, with an AMAZING total of $775 (MCPHS as a whole raised over $2000)! With this under our belts, the bar is set for future community service endeavors for the club.Coming up later in the semester, we plan on having movie nights for classic Italian films, café nights in the atrium, and our first annual San Gennarro festival at the end of the semester complete with games, prizes, food, and of course, cannolis!If you’re interested in attending these events look for advertisements around the University. Anyone interested in joining IASO and helping out with these events can contact us via IASO@mcphs.edu! Our next meetings will be on 10/30 and 11/14. EVERYONE IS WELCOME!
