Testimonials from Be Wise — Immunize Event Sponsors

 “Our involvement helped strengthen the communication between the health department and the Alliance and helped us create a partnership to improve immunization services locally.”
— Libby White, Lubbock-Crosby-Garza County Medical Society (CMS) Alliance

“Our Be Wise events helped our chapter partner with some community organizations we had not worked with previously. Plus, our student volunteers were able to administer the vaccines (with faculty supervision). We are always pleased to offer an opportunity that teaches clinical skills while serving the community.”
Blair Cushing, University of North Texas Health Science Center at Fort Worth, Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine student

“Immunization Collaboration of Tarrant County (ICTC) partners with Be Wise — Immunize because it provides vaccine education and marketing materials. And, staff offer advice and guidance on ideas, projects, and issues within the collaboration.”
Terri Andrews, Chair ICTC and Tarrant CMS Alliance

“Giving vaccinations at the child care conference was a worthy cause as it effects many more than the individuals actually getting the immunizations. We gave 80+ vaccines — more than double what was given the year before.” 
— Sheri Miller, Dallas CMS Alliance 

“We were able to spend the day of our event with residents in the Sparks community and learn more about their public health needs.”
Azadeh Nasrazadani, student and volunteer activities chair, Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center Paul L. Foster School of Medicine

“Our flu shot clinic gave us the opportunity to serve our community and to interact with patients in a way that we do not often get to as medical students.”

— Sandi English, PhD, CHWI, Parkside Family Clinic, Cuero, and Local Impact Grant recipient

“Community-based events are a great way to show you/we care. Our bacterial pneumonia event was a great opportunity to have our staff/board participate in a community project.”
— Cynthia A. Esquivel, Presidio County Health Services and Local Impact Grant recipient

“Stephen F. Austin State University administration was pleased and would like to see this clinic expand and continue annually.”
