UC Irvine SOM EMIG Hosts DUI awareness program
In March of 2014, Sari Lahham (MS3) was the coordinator of the event More Than Just A Drink on behalf of EMIG at UC Irvine. This event featured almost 1,000 upper classmen at Segerstrom High School in Santa Ana, California. The purpose of the event was to vividly display what the consequences of drunk driving could mean to the student’s lives. Santa Ana Police Department, OC Fire Authority, make-up artists, and more volunteers came together for this event to occur. The display included a crash scene, with a scene acted out by actual students of Segerstrom. The event also included speeches from Corporal Mark Bell of the Santa Ana PD as well as Dr. Chakravarthy of the UC Irvine Emergency Department.
