Funding breakdown of sources and/or donations:
Project advertising We advertised to Trinity, getting a good turn out. We contacted UCONN. med students and got a good turn out also. It was harder to contact physicians and a get responses from them. In the end, only one physician came to the event.
PROJECT EVALUATION
Success rating
(1 = unsuccesful, 5 = very successful)
Lessons/suggestions Medical students love free food. This was a great way to connect with an AMSA medical chapter close by to Trinity. We probably could have gotten more of the food donated if we had asked local restaurants. Overall, it was a very successful event.
