Hello MAPS family! Here are some pictures from April’s general meeting! (And yes, we recognize that these pictures are being posted midway through May. Better late than never!)
Aside from David and Patricia’s presentations in this meeting, we also introduced our expansion into Neuro Critical Care shadowing with Dr. Vespa (see post below). In addition, we discussed the January 2011 report, in which we had 8415 observations–the most that our program has ever gathered in one month! Truly, our organization is expanding rapidly, and our data reflects this.
Other important reminders in this meeting included: to keep both MAPS offices clean, to make copies of observation tools when they are running low, and, quite importantly, to make sure that our volunteers still conduct observations even when shadowing physicians. Even though you are welcome to spend most of your time talking to the physician you are shadowing, make sure to still mark down your regular observations on the side! We are still MAPS volunteers, after all!
We were glad to see some of you come out to this meeting, and we hope to see even more of you next Wednesday night, May 25, at our End of the Year Banquet! From 5pm to 7pm in the Ronald Reagan B-Level Auditorium, expect great food, good pictures, interesting guest speakers, nice awards, and all-out fun!
