2nd Round Table: The Ethics of International Medical Volunteering

Join LMPSU on Tuesday November 5th 6:00-8:00PM @ MS3163 for an important and necessary discussion of the ethical considerations of short-term, international medical volunteering. We have a diverse panel to explore all sides of the issue as much as possible:

– Prof. Helen Dimaras, Assistant Professor in Global Health
– Byron Song, Co-Founder of Global Medical Training U of T
– Jasmine Song, Participant of a VIDA U of T trip
– Prof. Marieme Lo, Assistant Professor in African Studies

If you have taken part in a volunteering trip, are considering going on one, or are simply a thoughtful onlooker, then this is the event for you. The emphasis of the panel is on audience interaction, so bring your questions and friends! Students from all disciplines and levels of study are welcome. Light snacks will be provided!

1st Round Table!

LMPSU will be hosting its first roundtable of the year on Wednesday, Oct. 16th from 6-8pm in MSB3163.
This roundtable will focus on the undergraduate research experience and is geared toward those seeking research opportunities within and outside the boundaries of LMP. This will also be a chance for seasoned undergraduate veterans to discuss some of the lessons they’ve learnt over their tenures in research. A panel of all LMP students will be on-hand to talk about their research experiences both in Toronto and around the world.

2nd Friday Food Adventure!

Welcome to the 2nd Friday Food Adventure! This week, we will be exploring the awesomeness that is Queen Street, with a total of 3 stops on our trip.

Our first stop is Nadege: French macarons, pastries, etc. http://www.nadege-patisserie.com/
Our second stop is Poutini’s: Canadian poutine, the best in Toronto (in my opinion) http://www.poutini.com/
And our last stop is Comebuy: Taiwanese/Asian bubble tea, milk teas, smoothies, etc. https://www.facebook.com/comebuytoronto

Nadege and Poutini’s is quite far away, so we will be taking the streetcar; bring TTC tokens/metropass! Furthermore, Poutini’s ONLY ACCEPTS CASH (although they have an ATM in the store), so bring cash!

We will be meeting at the MSB cafe again at 5pm (same place, same time).
