Med school student group wins national AMSA award

Feb. 02, 2014 @ 12:00 AM

HUNTINGTON -- The Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine chapter of the American Medical Student Association has been awarded the Paul R. Wright Chapter Success Award by AMSA's national leadership for the chapter's programming efforts in 2013.

The award is given to chapters that have promoted association's mission of inspiring future physicians through local events, innovative programming, leadership development and calls to action.

The JCESOM chapter organized several activities during the past year including a Primary Care Panel for preclinical students, volunteering for an anti-tobacco awareness campaign at Davis Creek Elementary School. In December, the group hosted the 8th annual Jingle Bell Run, which raised $1,000 for Hospice of Huntington and attracted 100 participants.
