Nick of Time Club – Informational TONIGHT

Calling all undergrad and graduate students!

If you are pre-med, pre-dent, pre-nursing, or anyone looking to get involved on campus and volunteer in the community, we invite you come learn about our RSO, Nick of Time Foundation at the University of Washington.

The Nick of Time Foundation is a local non-profit dedicated to educating schools, athletes, families, and communities about Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) and death in young people. They provide low-cost heart screenings for young athletes and spread awareness about SCA. Through our partnership with this organization, we provide community service opportunities for our members throughout the year. Much of our volunteering comes in the form of teaching CPR and AED use to the general public and helping promote their mission. There are also opportunities to network with various doctors and medical students involved with the foundation.

Come join the Nick of Time Club for our informational and leadership opportunities presentation on Thursday, April 12th, 2018 from 6:30pm-7:30pm in Allen Research Commons in Red Room C.

Please email notfuw@uw.edu with any questions you may have.
