Starting the first awareness event of the year it’s important to set the bar high and make sure we can put a positive impression on the MSA events awareness team, which is exactly what happened in the recent schizophrenia event. The event was set up as a partnership with a third party organisation through an alfaisal alumni, the MSA’s role was to set up the venue, booth, logistics and food. The booth was a great success with the highlight being the virtual reality simulations to put visitors in the shoe of a schizophrenia patient so they can get a first-hand view of the disease, advertisement of the event was on the different social media platforms which attracted a small handful of medical students but the main attraction audience point of the event was interns and doctors which were attracted by our partner. If I were to improve one thing at the event it would be the lack of adequate communication between the MSA and the third party organisation.
