What's happening on campus?
Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine student leaders announced they have created an Interfaith Prayer Room, which all members of the GCSOM community are welcome to enjoy. GCSOM Medical Student Council (MSC), acting on student requests, researched methods to accommodate the requests and worked with school facilities personnel to create a quiet, private space for prayer and reflection. The Interfaith Prayer Room is open 24 hours a day.
Student leaders who led the project include:
Somiah Almeky, a member of the MD Class of 2020.
Shradha Chhabria, a member of the MD Class of 2021 and MSC Executive Board Diversity and Inclusion Chair.
Carolena Trocchia, a member of the MD Class of 2021 and MSC Executive Board Health and Wellness Chair.
Navindra Tajeshwar, a member of the MD Class of 2021 and its Diversity and Inclusion Chair.
Nine Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine (GCSOM) students and a faculty member participated in GCSOM's annual "cultural explosion" fashion show, an event that caps off the school's Diversity Week celebration. During the event, the students shared their cultural dress while the audience learned about the garments' origins and were entertained with regional music as the models walked the red carpet.
Alyssa Muchisky of Eynon, a member of Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine's MD Class of 2021, is co-author of an abstract published in a supplement to the January 2019 edition of the American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology. Abstracts in the supplement were published in advance of the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine's (SMFM) 39th annual Pregnancy Meeting in Las Vegas, which will be held Feb. 11-16. Muchisky's co-authors will present the poster at the meeting.
