Medical Explorers (10/22/12)

Hey everyone!

Sorry for the late post, but I hoped you all enjoyed last week’s meeting about Adult Cardiology. I’m sure we all learned a lot from Dr. Friedman. Let’s all be grateful that we can meet and speak with such great doctors!

Also, notes from last week’s meeting are now online! As always, you can find them by clicking on the Meeting Notes tab.


That’s all folks! See you next time. 🙂

Information About Tomorrow’s Visit

Hello Everyone.

There seems to have been some confusion concerning this week’s visit. This post will include some details that are important for tomorrow’s meeting.

October 15th – We are meeting at  Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at 4 PM. The Cardiac Lab visit has been moved to November.

Whenever we have a meeting that involves visiting an outside facility, members meet at the entrance to the building being visited. In this case, we will all be meeting at the entrance to NICU at 4.
NICU is located on the second floor at 725 Welch Road, Palo Alto, CA 94304


***Please note that due to expansion efforts at the hospital, entrance routes have been altered. The link above provides more details.

We hope to see you all come to tomorrow’s visit! It should be an interesting experience for all of us.

See you tomorrow! 🙂

Medical Explorers (9/24/12)

Hi Explorers!

I hoped you enjoyed Monday’s meeting! Urgent Care is a crucial part of medicine that definitely deserves a lot of respect.

Let’s also thank Dr. Choi for teaching us on Monday. I’m sure we all learned a lot!

You can also always find the notes on our Notes page.


That’s all for now folks! See you at the next meeting. 🙂

Medical Explorers (9/10/2012)

Hello Explorers!

In yesterday’s meeting, we learned about Public Health from Sejal Parekh, a current pre-med student at Stanford. We got a chance to discuss the different factors that can affect an individual or a community, and hopefully, you all enjoyed Ms. Parekh’s interactive presentation.

After her lecture, she also spoke about the Public Health Advocates Program. If you are interested in participating in this program at your school or in a club, please visit to apply!

If you did not pick up the sheet at the meeting, you can download it here.

Some questions to think about:

  • How is public health important in preventing spread of illnesses or diseases within a community?
  • Can you think of other examples and their components at different levels? Can you come up with interventions at each of the levels?
    • Community Factors (political, social, economic, etc.)
    • Individual Health Behaviors
    • Health or Disease Risks
    • Health or Disease Outcomes

If you have any questions or would like to know more, contact Ms. Parekh at

EDIT: Meeting Notes are now online.

See you at the next meeting! 🙂
