Many attendees of the 2017 CMSC Annual Meeting held in New Orleans came out early to join the Foundation’s Seventh Annual Fun Walk. The Historic Mississippi River Heritage Park provided the backdrop for an invigorating way to begin the day. The proceeds from the Walk help the Foundation continue our innovative programs that improve patient care through training experiences offered by the Foundation.
The MS Workforce of the Future programs provides outstanding medical students with three to six month research experiences mentored by CMSC member researchers and clinicians. Upon completion of their projects, scholars present their research in poster sessions at the CMSC Scientific Annual Meeting. These poster sessions afford these students valuable exposure not only to their peers, but to leaders and potential corporate sponsors.
This important networking event provides professionals and professionals-in-training who have benefited from FCMSC programs during 2017 the opportunity to exchange experiences at an evening “Meet n Greet” scholar reception followed by a Scholar Recognition buffet luncheon and Key Note Speaker the next afternoon. Attendees include Medical Student Research scholars, MS Rehabilitation scholars, MS Mentorship Forum attendees, Neurology Residents, MS nurses, Scholar Mentors, Corporate Sponsors and FCMSC Board Members.
