Alexa Bolock of Waverly, a member of Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine's (GCSOM) MD Class of 2021, was elected a national delegate to the American Association of Medical Colleges' (AAMC) Organization of Student Representatives (OSR) for the Northeast Region. Her election gives GCSOM students a powerful voice within academic medicine at a national level.
Students from Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine (GCSOM) were well represented at the Pennsylvania Medical Society (PAMED) annual House of Delegates meeting in Hershey on Oct. 26. During the meeting, PAMED's Medical Student Section held elections for statewide offices. Several GCSOM students were elected to leadership positions.
Based on a national initiative started at the University of Washington, the Death Over Dinner project was created to explore aspects of death and dying that we tend to avoid in our everyday lives but that might make all the difference for ourselves and our loved ones when the time does come.Given that 80 percent of people would like to have end-of life conversations with their doctor when seriously ill, yet only 7 percent report having this talk, event organizers hope to help future care providers be open to frank discussions with their patients.
