Inaugural Medical Student Grand Rounds

Advocacy as a Medical Student: Lessons Learned and Ways Forward

Luma Abunimer, M4
Sarah Yosief, M4

You are invited to the first Medical School Grand Rounds titled "Advocacy as a Medical Student: Lessons Learned and Ways Forward" presented by Sarah Yosief (M4) and Luma Abunimer (M4).

Both Sarah and Luma have been extensively involved in serving the communities within Roanoke and VTC and they'll discuss their experiences and what they've learned in the process. The presentation will be given over Zoom and there will be an in-person viewing option (with donuts) in the M210 as well.

Statement about accessibility and accommodation

The Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine is committed to creating an inclusive and accessible event. All virtual events will have automated captions. Recorded events will have edited captions available soon after the event. If you desire live captioning or a sign language interpreter, please contact the organizer two weeks before the event. 

For in-person events, the main VTCSOM building at Riverside 2 is wheelchair accessible from the elevators inside the parking garage. Blind or visually impaired users may need assistance finding the elevators under the building, or using the stairs in front of the building.

If you need a reasonable accommodation to attend an in-person event, please contact the organizer of the event. All reasonable accommodation requests should be made no less than 2 weeks before the event. We will attempt to fulfill requests made after this date but cannot guarantee they will be met.
