Dine and Dash: A Holiday Social

Despite the restraints imposed on the world by the COVID 19 pandemic, the Greater Norfolk Medical Society of South Hampton Roads was able to creatively celebrate with the medical student during the holidays. In previous years, the members of the medical society and minority medical students from EVMS and premedical students from local colleges have been able to socialize in person. The venues were spacious and the food was delicious. Although there was usually some sort of program, there was also ample time for networking; not so for this year. Below you can see pictures of our holiday celebration held at Town Point Club on December 1, 2020. Approximately 40 medical students went to Town Point to pick up take out dinners for our “Dine and Dash Event”.

As in previous years the Greater Norfolk Medical Society of South Hampton Roads partnered with the Office of Diversity and Inclusion at EVMS. A tasty meal packaged in a brown paper bag was available for each participating student for pickup before they went on their holiday break in December.

The medical students were greeted by our new president, Dr. Stafford Brown and EVMS Vice President Mekbib Gemeda. There was even a little time to safely socialize as the participants kept their distance and masks on.
