EHealers seeks leadership.

Written by Mykel Estes | Leave a comment

My name is James and I am a D3. I am transitioning into my 4th year in Dental school and will be gone on rotations for most of the year. I have an amazing organization on campus called Entertainment Healers. It is also a 501c non profit organization registered in the state of Az. I am currently looking for anyone who is interested in taking over the club on campus and becoming president.

Entertainment Healers is designed to use the art of entertainment to help raise funds that support the concepts of giving back and helping those in need. We host comedy shows, concerts, and entertaining events, like the annual halloween party, both on and off campus to raise funds that are donated to other organizations who’s mission is to help those in need.

If you enjoy planning events, are an entertainer, musician, or someone who likes to give back to those in need, this is a great opportunity for you. Also, if you plan on specializing or applying for a residency program, this will drastically help boost your application. Think about it, it’s a unique non-profit organization that helps those in need through the art of entertainment, not specifically related to dentistry alone. The helps you stand out from the other applicants because it expresses a different aspect of the type of person that you are.

This is a great opportunity to have fun in dental school and to put a smile on the faces of those who need it the most. For more information, check out the website at www.e-healers.org. if you haven’t already, please please please visit our Facebook page and like it. It would mean a lot to me. Thank you guys so much for reading this super long email and for hearing me out. I appreciate it. If interested in taking over the organization, please email me and let me know what position you would like to apply for.

For more information e-mail James directly a jyounan@atsu.edu.

March of Dimes: Volunteers Needed!

Written by cziembiec | Leave a comment
SOMA’s Pediatrics and OB/GYN Clubs have been working closely with March of Dimes, and have been offered the opportunity to staff the Family Teams tent on Phoenix’s race day (April 9th) with ATSU students of all disciplines!

Each year on race day, the families and loved ones of premature infants get together to support & celebrate one another. The Family Teams tent is dedicated to activities, support, and education for families and their children. Our role will be to help them create MyPlates, play chalk games like hopscotch, and help parents with the Memorial Garden where they may create & dedicate a flower to a lost child.

This is an amazing opportunity to work with the community, to hear incredible stories of strength and love, and share your capacity for healing. AND (as if it could get better), this is an interprofessional opportunity! We hope to be joined by students from all programs!

We have set-up two shifts:
1. 5:30a (setup) until 8:30a
2. 8:30a until 11:30 (close down)

April 9th, Wesley Bolin Memorial Plaza
