MEMO Monthly Recaps and Upcoming Events #1

RECAP

For the month of October, MEMO collaborated with VPASC, Lestonnac Free Clinic, OCVA Foundation, and many other health organizations on organizing and hosting a free health fair clinic for the Orange County communities on October 15th, 2017. Many of our members from UCI, UCSD, and UCLA were able to experience first-hand what a health fair looked like, from hands-on experience with measuring blood pressure, blood glucose, and cholesterol to assisting dental assistants. The event was a huge success and MEMO would like to thank the community for coming out! We will continue to work hard and put on other health fairs for those that were unable to make it to this health fair clinic.

Welcome Back 11Gers!

With the school year starting again in a few weeks and students from NonProfit and chapters (UCI, UCLA and UCSD) are preparing for another amazing year of raising fund, awareness, and providing free health fairs, M.E.M.O. would like to begin the year by welcoming back our 11Gers who went on the mission trip this past summer.

From serving over 1800 patients between two clinics, to sponsoring 11 congenital heart surgeries, and even providing 100 scholarships, it is amazing to see just how much this dedicated team of 30 MEMOers and 8 doctors were able to accomplished in Vietnam and none of this effort would have been possible without your generous donations and support. So THANK YOU and CONGRATS 11Gers!
