    • I am still keeping track of members who were not picked for previous clinics more than once, so these people will also get priority when we make our decisions.
  • Committees: Below are the lists of committees that we currently have. To be more involved, we encourage everyone to join one so you can see how things are run behind the background. If you are interested, please reply to this email and we will forward it to the appropriate officer and they will tell you more about what each committee is working on.
    • Fundraising Committee
    • Public Health Committee
    • Pharmacy Committee
    • Clinic Promotion and Expansion Committee
  • Elections: In a few weeks, we will be having elections to pick the next group of officers who will lead this organization. This is an amazing opportunity to gain leadership experience and to help Flying Samaritans at SDSU continue to grow. All 14 positions are up for reelection, and there is an interview process. The decision will be made by the Election board consisting of our Advisor Dr.Martin, 2 providers, and the 9 officers who are graduating. Applications and more details on what you have to turn in will be send soon. Feel free to ask any questions about position duties and expectations to any officer.
