The AMA sponsored two events last week to help promote April as the nationally observed Health Month.
On Tuesday April 5th, Mr. Jim Bowman gave a stimulating lunch lecture on LBGTQ (Lesbian, Bisexual, Gay, Transgender, Questioning) Health. Wegman's subs were provided as a healthy lunch choice for those who attended. Thanks to the AMA VP's of Community Service, Lisa Linde and Julie Garchow, for organizing the event!
On Thursday April 7th, the AMA e-board gave out healthy pre-exam snacks to the UB First Year Medical Student Class, who were preparing for their renal histology exam last Friday. Before exams is a common time when many students will scramble for easier and faster food options, which is often poor choices such as calorie-rich fast food, chips, candy, etc. To help promote healthy snacking choices before exams, the care-packages consisted of granola bars, apples, string cheese, water, and a promotional ad for the AMA Event on April 30th - Miles for Healthier Lifestyle.
