Counsel from the council
As first-year students arrived on campus, the Medical Student Council, led by President Kavita Mariwalla, Vice President Brian Nahed and Treasurer Mariah Ruth, guided them through orientation with a series of events. The council opened the student-run used bookstore for the academic year and held a sale of used scrubs and anatomy tools. To promote some camaraderie among students in the different health professions, the council organized Olympic games with students from medicine, public health, nursing and the Physician Associate Program. Earlier in the year the council organized a second-look weekend for medical school applicants and published a guide to the medical school and New Haven for first-year students.
