Summary of project Spoke at a panel that was specifically for freshman students in the medical field majors. Reserved a table at two huge campus events to pass out information and take down the students email addresses. Put up a table in main buildings the day of our first meeting to remind the students. We had sent out an email to our regular members 4 days before first meeting and the new memeber email addresses a day before the first meeting. At our first meeting we had over 100 people come!!! The officers also put on a little dance for the beginning of the meeting to michael jackson the Thriller.
