West Virginia University Med School Milers

Description of Goals, Purpose, and Activities

The goals of the Med School Milers organization are to encourage health and companionship amongst students in the medical school and also hopefully with any interested faculty through regular group running events outside of the curricular setting. A regular meeting time will be set and adjusted throughout the year based on the availability in the academic calendar for all classes. Further, the group will serve the medical school through community service events, including but not limited to, running and wellness related events. The club will host at least one formal meeting per semester as a lunchtime lecture. The topics of these lectures will be related to running but in a larger context of running and personal wellness in order to make the meeting applicable and interesting to all students within and external to the core membership.
