PHYSICIANS and MEDICAL STUDENTS, Let's meet our 2019 Mentees! (by invitation only)
May 1, 2019
I AM ABEL FOUNDATION is closing the gap while preparing our Chicago area students for careers in medicine and service to humanity. As an organization built on mentoring, we are excited that you have agreed to become a medical student or physician mentor. This reception will be the first opportunity of many for many of you to meet and mingle with your newly assigned mentee. Come share your story or a word of encouragement with our pre-med hopefuls. There will be a bite to eat and wonderful entertainment plus an inspiring keynote address from one of I AM ABEL FOUNDATION physician mentors and Chicago Top Doc, Adrianne Dade, MD (pictured above).
We truly hope that you may join us for the reception but if you are unable to attend, we will email to you the contact information for your mentee by May 31st, 2019 along with our Mentee Handbook PDF so you may schedule your own first meeting. We ask that the medical school student or physician mentor establishes the initial contact when possible because in our experience, the students are typically too afraid to initiate contact.
We truly appreciate all of our mentors especially our newest additions to the mentoring family at I AM ABEL FOUNDATION - our medical students. You are critical to the life of our students and we look forwards to expanding mentoring in this group. We truly believe that "each one must teach one." Through highly impactful mentoring and our scholarly programs, we focus on preparing Chicago area underrepresented youth for careers in medicine and global health humanitarian service locally and abroad.
