This is accounting for the Summit Prep Meetings I took part in either in person or over the phone prior to the Pre-Professional Healthcare Summit. I enjoyed this experience so much, and I'm excited to work on the committee for next year as well! It was a super fun experience, and I felt like I learned a lot about all aspects of event planning.
Instead of a perimeter cleanup, we made cards for patients in the hospital - I really enjoyed doing this! I made some Mother's Day and Birthday cards, and we also had some strangers come in and volunteer with us as well. The volunteer coordinator from Renown was so nice and it was a great environment to be around for a volunteer event!
Sadly, because I wasn't feeling well the day before, I missed the first day of the conference. However, I helped out as an event gatekeeper at the AHEC main table for two hours before taking the CPR Certification course, and had a lot of fun! The second day definitely seemed less busy than the first (from what I've heard), so it was fairly quiet. We signed people in, gave gift bags to the workshop presenters, and sorted out session evaluation cards.
Almost everyone showed up right at 12pm, so we were able to divide up the responsibilities to prepare for the Summit very well. I edited and printed the thank-you letters to professionals/speakers, did some work with the raffle baskets, wrote thank-you cards for speakers, and helped come up with some fun name tag ideas. Overall, I really liked this event in particular because it was four hours of productive work, working alongside other ambassadors whom we got to know better.
For the Pre-Professional Healthcare Summit, I contacted multiple news sources by e-mail, followed up with phone calls and repeat e-mails, and spoke one on one with a UNR Sagebrush editor answering questions about the event. I went around campus and hung flyers in the DMSC, Honors Program, and took flyers to the RHFS to be hung in the dorms.
I really enjoyed tabling for AHEC at Whole Foods. I got there fifteen minutes early so I looked around the store, then helped set up the table at the main entrance of the store. Our theme for this event was "Neuroscience", so we had a lot of brain-related information set out, for adults and children, on one half of the table, and AHEC fundraising materials on the other. We did not raise a ton of money, but I walked around the store and handed out fliers for the Nickels for nonprofits advertisement and stickers to children. It was a quick shift but I look forward to doing it again!
