Dive Into Dentistry Day

My name is Abigail Mazon. I am a dental student at the University of Washington School of Dentistry and a member of the American Student Dental Association (ASDA) chapter for the school.

UW ASDA is hosting an event called Dive into Dentistry Day for pre-dental students, and we would love to invite all pre-dental students to attend. This event will immerse pre-dental students into various dental activities such as drilling, suturing, and waxing teeth. There will also be workshops on mock interviews, applying to dental school, and financial aid options.

I have attached our pdf flyer to this email and our Facebook page:

Please contact " UWDIDD" or our facebook page with any questions.

Camp Promise-West is looking for volunteers this summer

Do you still need something fun to do this summer? Are you energetic, creative, and enthusiastic? Do you like working with youth and being a part of a FUN team? Are you looking to gain experience in the healthcare field or working with people with special health care needs??

If YES, then Camp Promise-West is looking for YOU!

We are currently recruiting volunteers who are mature and responsible individuals, who like working hard and who are willing to learn. Camp Promise-West is a 1-week overnight camp for kids, teens, and adults with muscular dystrophy and select neuromuscular diseases, and we believe all kids should get to experience the magic of camp, regardless of their medical needs or physical abilities. Our schedule is jam packed with theme days, pranks, costumes, summer fun, and activities that are 100% wheelchair accessible. We provide camp and medical care free of charge to our campers and highly value our volunteers who help make this happen.

Available positions include:

1) 1) One-on-one counselors to provide friendship, assistance and personal care to campers.

2) Program staff (photographers, yearbook editors, sports, drama, music, etc)

3) Medical staff (nurses, doctors, physical therapists, occupational therapists, respiratory therapists, etc)

This is an ideal opportunity for individuals who are dedicated to giving back to their community, or those who are interested in a career in the healthcare field and who are looking for experience working one-on-one with individuals with special health care needs. Many (but not ALL!) of our volunteers are pre-health students (medicine, nursing, PT/OT, etc) or interested in social work or counseling, or grad students/professionals in these fields. While, helpful, experience is not required as we provide all necessary training at our Orientation session prior to camper arrival.

Our volunteers are of all ages, come from diverse backgrounds and from all over the country, so whatever your skills may be, if you are committed to making camp the best week of our campers’ year, we’d love to hear from you!

The details:

§ Dates: August 23-29, 2015

§ Location: Vaughn, WA

§ Requirements: Be at least 16 years old, submit an application, complete an interview, and pass background & reference checks.

§ Application deadline: May 31, 2015

§ Website: camppromise.org

How to Apply:
