Hi all,

First of all, a major congrats to the Med-4s: they've been officially awarded their degrees on Minerva and celebrated accordingly last night. Hopefully everyone has recovered by now.

This week's Murmur is mini (in case you didn't get the joke in the title), so I will take this opportunity to remind everyone that the SPCI & MSS Gala is tomorrow (Monday) night at 6PM on the 6th floor of the McIntyre building. There will be lots of food (meal equivalent) and dessert, as well as juice, coffee, and iced coffee. If that wasn't enough, we have a great speaker and will be awarding prizes to students from all 4 med years, so come support them! All of the information can be found here.

Have a great week!

Natasha Caminsky, MSS VP Internal 2016-2017

"Patrick's Day", MAY 30, 7:00 PM, MOYSE HALL

Faculty of Medicine

Join us for a free screening and discussion of the movie "Patrick's Day" (2014). An unstable young man (Moe Dunford) begins a relationship with a troubled flight attendant (Catherine Walker), forcing his mother to attempt to wrench the two apart in this drama written and directed by Terry McMahon. A provocative and heart-breaking love story about the right to intimacy for everyone, "Patrick’s Day" proves, when it comes to love, we’re all a little crazy.

Screening will be followed by a panel discussion with Dr. Gerald Wiviott, Psychiatrist, McGill University Health Centre, Ella Amir, Executive Director, Action on Mental Illness-Quebec, and Rosalie Fagen, family member. No reservation required.
