Erica Tainsh is a second year medical student at the University of Miami. She spoke with Shelly Lynn about the upcoming 5K fundraiser held by the Miller School of Medicine Department of Community Service (DOCS). DOCS is an entirely student run organization that provides free health screening services to nearly 2,000 medically underserved individuals in Miami-Dade, Broward, and Monroe Counties. At the DOCS health fairs and clinics, Miller School students work with faculty to bring much-needed health screenings to patients, and provide education on healthier lifestyle choices.
To register for the event, please complete the registration form at www.umdocs.org.

The 5K will be on January 11th, 2014.
