A big shout-out to all the Med-Peds programs that participated in the 2nd Annual NMPRA Community Service Day, which was held on Saturday, March 4, 2017! Medical students, residents, and faculty members engaged in a variety of service activities to positively influence the lives of people living in our local communities. Please see the amazing photographs below. Kalamazoo Med-Peds is the winner of this year’s competition for being the most eco-friendly program: recycling t-shirts to make bags for the homeless…what a great idea! If your program took part in this activity but is not featured below, please send your photos to Nupur Agrawal at outreach@medpeds.org

Baylor Med-Peds residents and medical students got their farm on by volunteering with Plant It Forward, which is a community organization that helps refugees grow their own urban farm businesses!

Baystate Med-Peds prepared and served dinner at the Springfield Rescue Mission on March 11th. A great time and delicious enchiladas were had by all who participated!

University of Miami/Jackson Med-Peds served up hot lunch at a local shelter!
