Close Concerns helped launch The diaTribe Foundation, a non-profit that acts as an educational resource for patients with diabetes. (Feel free to visit our official Close Concerns and diaTribe websites for more information!) I have the amazing opportunity to help plan a college advice panel for high school students, like me, in the San Francisco Bay Area. Many of our team’s Associates are currently attending college or have recently graduated from college, and they would be more than happy to share their wisdom to help high school students navigate this big transition. Last year at this event (College Day), we had students and alums from colleges such as Stanford, CSU Monterey Bay, Georgetown, and many more speak about their experiences, give advice, and provide helpful information to the attendees. The event will consist of a Q&A about the college application process, academics (as well as more specific discussions on studying health and medicine), student life, and extracurricular activities. Anyone who attends will also have a chance to ask their own questions!
The panel is free of charge at 776 Haight Street, San Francisco, CA 94117 The address is just a few blocks from the Duboce & Noe MUNI station. We’ve been working very hard on organizing this panel, and we would love to have you join us and promote this event to others in your organization! Even if someone unable to attend in person, the panel will be broadcast via Facebook Live. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you so much for helping me, and I hope that I can see some MA students at College Day!
