The best way to grow the size and impact of your group is by hosting events on campus in partnership with other organizations. Advertise heavily for each event so that students know about it and can plan in advance to attend. At your events, be prepared to talk to students about when you have meetings, what your group does, the opportunities available to them through Medical Students for Life of America and how they can get involved. Have a handout prepared to give to students at your events containing all of this information.
Post flyers around campus advertising your group and meetings
- You and your group members can talk to or email your friends and other students about the group and what you do.
- Keep contact names, emails, and phone numbers. Keep the members posted on upcoming events and meetings.
- Talk to other campus organizations, such as Catholic Medical Association or Christian Medical and Dental Association, that may share similar convictions as you, and see if their members would like to join the Medical Students for Life group, or begin Bioethics Committees within their existing groups supported by Medical Students for Life of America.
