Summary of project Our local AMSA chapter met with Arizona State University's pre-med chapter. We were able to introduce ourselves to each other, promote the national convention, and give application tips for the pre-meds. ASU PreMed Chapter brought in a speaker, Dr. Mulligan MD, a transplant surgeon from Mayo hospital in Scottsdale, AZ. Our chapter also had the opportunity to give a brief talk about osteopathic medicine and its history and then had a 9 member panel set up for ASU's chapter to ask questions.
