OUHSC Adopt-a-Patient: Summer Smiles Drive | Today – July 17

DLB Union, Suite 300 | 8 AM – 5 PM Business Days

For the 2015 Summer Season, HSC Student Affairs has teamed up with both the Children’s Hospital and the OU Medical Center. Our goal is to help the patients feel more secure and “at home” in the hospital. We are gathering new pajamas, blankets, toys and other simple comforts that can help.   Many families come to the hospital in emergency situations, with little time to pack items.  Additionally, over 70% of families served are considered “low-income” and could use a helping hand.

Step 1:   Pick up and fill out an Adopt-A-Patient form | HSC Student Affairs in the DLB Union, Suite 300.

Step 2:   The HSC Student Affairs office will assign a patient in need.

Step 3:   Purchase item(s) indicated for your patient and return them UNWRAPPED to HSC Student Affairs, DLB UNION SUITE 300, no later than Friday, July 17 at 4 PM.

One Sooner Training | Summer dates

DLB Union 205 | 11:45 AM – 1 PM

It only takes one Sooner to speak out to end sexual misconduct on our campus.  Attend this one-hour training to learn how you can use your influence, popularity, and credibility to help end sexual assault and other forms of sexual misconduct on our campus.  Through informal peer-to-peer conversations you can correct rape myths, speak up when you see or hear a risky situation, educate your friends about protective behaviors, and share what resources are available on campus. 
The training will help you understand what types of sexual misconduct happen on OU’s campus and prepare you to share important information that can protect your community.  You are in the best position to positively influence and support our students. Participants will receive a One Sooner t-shirt and button after attending training.

Will you be the One?

Email your name, email address, OU affiliation, and t-shirt size to students@ouhsc.edu if you’d like to attend this training on July 14 or August 26 at 11:45 AM.
