Attention Students:

The Student Center is currently undergoing a construction project that includes replacing the existing hot water tank that provides hot water for both of the locker rooms.

As a result, the showers in both of the locker rooms will be closed for approximately one week to allow for the removal of the existing tank and the installation of an on-demand system.

We apologize for the inconvenience that this may cause and will be providing you with more detailed information including the dates of the shower closure in the near future.

Please note that all of the other amenities will remain open and the shower in the pool area will be available for individuals to take a quick shower; however, this is a limited space, so please consider other shower alternatives during this closure period.

Quiz Bowl Results

Hey All
I wanted to thank everyone who showed up for the quiz bowl, I was impressed by the turn out and everyone said they had a lot of fun. The Mighty Mighty SOMites (Med Students were the only group stoke enough to make a team name) manage to win only because Mark Munoz and Adam Blanchard were able to prevent the rest of their team from going negative. The dentist had a valiant effort, in one round, recovering from -1200 to 200 points shy from beating the winning team. Of course, nursing was the life of the party – I remember one nursing student schooling everyone when she answered this question: “This foot bone has been used historically as dice in gambling games. - What is the cuboid?” – Whoever you were miss nursing student that was pretty awesome.

Great Job everyone. I would like to thank the sponsor – OHSU student council, OSU College of Pharmacy Executive Council, Rho Chi Pharmacy Honor Society.

If you would like to make this event annually, contact your OHSU student council representative to try host the event again@ ohsustudent.blogspot.com

OHSU Hill For Humanity Run-April 17 from 9:30 AM - Sign up Sheet

Dear classmates and colleagues,

If you participated in the Hills for Humanity run last year, we raised over $1500 for the Cascadia Garlington Behavioral Health Clinic, which serves 500 people with addiction and mental health issues.

This year, we are back on Saturday, April 17th with a new route through Marquam Nature Park that spends almost the entire time on the trails and will be much more clearly marked than last year's.

We are dedicating the Sixth Annual Hills for Humanity Trail Run & Hike to the late Dr. William "Bill" Connor, who was instrumental in expanding the trails on which we'll be running and hiking in order to connect OHSU to the larger Marquam Nature Park/Council Crest/Forest Park system of woodlands. We will donate all proceeds to the Wallace Medical Concern and the Southwest Community Health Clinic, two resources for local low-income uninsured patients. Dr. Connor volunteered tirelessly at the former clinic, and OHSU medical students continue to help patients at both clinics to this day.

Please consider signing up to run, hike, or volunteer again this year! To register, either send in the attached form or go to our online registration site, which also has more information. Got questions? Email me back at moorkath@ohsu.edu for some answers.

Just like last year, we will have awards for the winners and a prize drawing after the race. We'll also have free massages, coffee, and snacks on site, not to mention a great t-shirt and lots of appreciation for your help.

We know that this is the same day as the PA Kickball tournament

Thanks again,

Info session about new Healthcare Bill

Hello classmates,

You've probably heard about the new health care bill passed by congress. Maybe you haven't had a chance to look over the lengthy articles that explain it, but you still want to be informed about the legislation that will affect your practice in the future.

For those who are interested in learning more about the bill and what it will mean for us (now and in the future), please come to this info session hosted by the PNHP OHSU student chapter. Dr Huntington of Corvallis will be giving an informational talk followed by a question and answer session.

Pizza will be provided.

Time: 12 noon, Friday, April 23
Place: Richard Jones Hall 4359

Please RSVP so we know how much pizza to order!

Hope to see you all there,

Maliheh Nakhai
PNHP Education Chair
