Recent Events in September

We’ve been busier than ever! This past month saw great events with strong work by USIG:
1. Health fair in Santa Ana in Madison Park. Medical students were on hand to provide information on heatlh education and spur children’s interest in medicine using portable ultrasound machines.
2. 2012 Western Regional Emergency Medicine Student Symposium hosted by UC Irvine School of Medicine in collaboration with the Keck School of Medicine of USC. Members of USIG were present along with Dr. Fox to teach bedside ultrasound to conference attendees.
