Summary of project There were three chapter officers that were interested in attending the 2008 Region 8 Conference in St. Louis, Missouri. The University of Kansas provided us with a travel grant that covered most, if not all of the costs for the conference. The costs include travel, registration, food, and hotel. The conference was a great experience in learning more about AMSA and how students get get involved in making positive changes in our health care system. After the experience, a formal letter was written, explaining what we learned and how the experience helped us as a chapter and within the Kansas City community.
