In an attempt to reduce "information fragmentation," all postbacs have been subscribed to posts to the uscpostbac.info "Announcements" page (hopefully, this will be helpful). If you want to be removed from this list, please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I'll take you off the announcements list (responding to the main announcement email messages will email all postbacs).
Another benefit of this change -- if you have an announcement to make to all postbacs, just log into the website and post it. It will be propagated to everyone via email.
I'm going to re-post a few announcements made by Megan in order to keep the information on the website cohesive and available to all.
Have a great Sunday!
I just received this. Past PPP students have received funding through Rose Hills. For those of you beginning to do volunteer research or interested in starting a project, this could be the source of funding for a summer research fellowship.
I've uploaded transcripts of BISC220 and BISC320 lectures (take a look at the Files section.)
Good luck with the new semester!
I hope you are enjoying the last few days of a well-deserved break! Just a few quick things:
-Postbacc Reception this Friday (2-4pm) in SGM 414 (usual reception room). As usual, this is an informal meeting, so please come and go as you need.

As a part of an educational series for Public Health Brigades, we're bringing in Dr. Rishi Manchanda to speak about the work he does in south LA. He is a primary care physician at St. John's Well Child and Family Center, one of LA's largest clinics. As a social medicine doctor, he uses medicine from both a clinical and human rights approach. Come to campus tomorrow (Thursday, Oct 7th) at 7 pm, ZHS 352, to listen to him talk about health issues in our own community and what is being done to empower members of south LA! Call me if you have questions 574-360-5021.
Hello my fellow postbaccers,
Hope you all are having a great semester so far.
I wanted to let you all know about a winter break volunteer opportunity I am involved with for anyone interested in global health, clinical experience, and working on your Spanish skills. The clinic is located on the shores of in , and services a community of roughly 14,000 indigenous Mayan residents. Also, the program includes Medical Spanish classes taught by local doctors who will familiarize you with the terminology and etiquette involved with working in a Guatemalan clinical setting. For more information, check out the program's site: http://www.mayanmedicalaid.org/project_global_programs.htm
Also, if you would like more detailed information than what is outlined on the site, feel free to reach out to me directly and I'd be happy to give you a more detailed breakdown.
I just received this email from the Violence Intervention Program about a PAID position for an English/Spanish translator. Could be a good experience for those of you who wish to keep up your Spanish skills. If you are interested, contact Kitty Dillavou and feel free to mention my name. They are always looking for mentors and tutors if that is something you are interested in.

We need some help with translation from English to Spanish and vice versa. We have support staff who does this regularly but we are still short in the afternoons for help.
If you wish to help out with translating and think you have good command of Spanish language and would be able to help with some clinical language, please let me know.
