This month we are meeting at Kadhai for boutique northern Indian cuisine. Once a month we’ll pick a restaurant and descend en masse – partly for a fun meal out, partly to sample new places (or new choices from old places!), and partly to get to know each other better.

We want to be as flexible as possible – no private room, no fixed menu, and separate checks – just a time to get to know new neighbors. We can swap eating tips, share plates (if the spirit moves you), even swap tables mid-meal if you want! There is seating available outside on the Streetery and a group will also be dining inside.

We’ll have name tags and a sign at the table to help. RSVP is required to co-lead Janet Dante by August 14.

Sometimes, the amount of information coming from a provider to the patient can be overwhelming, and in the heat of the moment, it's easy for patients to forget all the questions they meant to ask the provider. Volunteer medical note-takers can help members organize their questions and then accompany them to appointments to take careful notes and make sure the appointment has a two-way flow of information.

This notetaking training provided by the Executive Director of Northwest Neighbors Village, DC, is open to volunteers from all DC area villages. BMAV volunteers are welcome to join to learn this skill and offer it as part of rides to medical appointments. Those who have not yet volunteered but would like to provide this particular service are also welcome to register.

Learning Objectives:

Understand why medical notes matter in today's healthcare environment
Understand the role of the medical note taker
Understand the differences between medical note taking and medical advocacy
Understand how confidentiality and HIPAA guidelines are applied

RSVP to director@bmavillage.org required. Training materials can be provided to those who cannot attend.
