Future doctors serve at food bank of eastern Oklahoma

We were honored to be part of Dr. Pete’s Big Event where each year incoming Oklahoma State University medical students volunteer at several Tulsa organizations as part of their first day of orientation! The newest class of more than 100 incoming OSU College of Osteopathic Medicine students spent their morning at a handful of organizations serving in and around Tulsa! “Service to your community is one of the tenants of OSU College of Osteopathic Medicine and it’s important to reinforce that mission on the first day of being a medical student,” said Angela Bacon, assistant dean of Student Life and Wellness.

Did you know our volunteers help us save a million dollars a year? We are grateful for these future doctors and all of the 6,000 volunteers who are a tremendous asset to us each year! The medical students packed 643 sacks of produce for us during this session!
