Students at Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine and Touro College of Pharmacy celebrated their cultures at the annual Tastes of the World Celebration.

International Medicine, SNMA, LMSA, APAMSA, and Family Medicine will be putting on a more extensive version of Tastes of the World this year. Celebrate our diverse student body and faculty by enjoying favorite foods from our home countries or our countries of heritage!

Last year, we were able to raise $500 in half an hour for people in Venezuela!

This year, along with having students bring in dishes from where they are from, we will also be having a clothing drive and a bone marrow registry. We wanted to recruit faculty and get you all involved this year! We would love for this to be a good opportunity to get everyone here at Touro together before Thanksgiving break to have some amazing food and really give back to the community.

There are several ways to give at this event:
1. You can donate $5 to purchase a plate of food (additional donations are encouraged)
2. You can donate a bag of clothes
3. You can make a large dish for the potluck
4. You can sign up to be a part of the bone marrow registry

Your donated money will be sent to the Rohingya Refugee Crisis via UNICEF.

Your donated clothes will be sent to the Salvation Army.

Your homemade large dish will feed hungry students and professors.

Your registration with "Be The Match" Bone Marrow Registry could potentially save a life.
