Jaron Smith, BRI-MCW Chapter President and Kate Nix, BRI-MCW Chapter President Emeritus made student presentations to the largest audience to date at MCW’s monthly Journal Club. Before an audience of 80 attendees enjoying Qdoba burritos, Jaron’s presentation questioned the value of patient
satisfaction surveys, and whether they do more harm than good to patient outcomes. Kate Nix, herself a former intern at The Heritage Foundation, presented a healthcare model of eliminating employer-based insurance, and empowering patients to make their own insurance purchasing decisions.
As previously stated, we experienced much better attendance and more participation than at previous Journal Club events, which in their own right had above-average attendance for this type of campus event. At this final meeting, even new voices raised their opinions.
According to one student:
We appreciate the opportunity to partner with BRI, which enables us to produce educational, informative, and quality events like this one.
This event occurs in the Central Time Zone, starting at 12 noon. Lunch (sandwiches or pizza) will be provided.
Please join us for our final BRI/AMA Journal Club meeting. For a year now, we’ve provided a forum where students present and discuss news or journal articles on various extra-medical topics. Attendance at these events has been tremendous, and the feedback is very positive. It’s been a great year learning and studying with fellow students, so please come and be with us one last time for this year to discuss topics related to health policy, public health, medical technology, and much more.
Thanks to all the great participants through the year!
