  • Grants to support more than a dozen community-service-learning projects for students;

  • Sponsorship of the poster session and reception at the 2012 and 2013 Community Service Learning Conferences;

  • Grants supporting six student research projects;

  • Equipment for the H-E-B Clinical Skills Center, including new instruments for arthrocentesis training, ultrasound paracentesis and thoracentisis training packages; an ultrasound compatible LP trainer; a breast-exam trainer; and a chest-tube trainer;

  • 700 hours of tutoring services and First Aid Study Guides for the USMLE (United States Medical Licensing Examination) Step 1 Exam for the Class of 2015; and

  • Renovations to the School of Medicine Alumni Association Student Lounge as well as the addition of a freezer, Keurig coffee maker, pool table, ping-pong table, foosball table and installation of three microwave ovens.
