The Idaho College of Osteopathic Medicine (ICOM) turned into a fast food drive-thru on Tuesday, May 19, as its medical students drove by to pick up a free lunch.
Faculty and staff of Idaho’s first medical school lined the campus parking lot, holding signs of support and handing out Chick-fil-A sandwiches to the parade of students’ vehicles. Employees maintained social distance and wore face masks and gloves to hand out the sandwiches.
“We want our students to know how much we care about them,” said Elizabeth Watson, Director of Student Services. “We miss having our students on campus and we’re excited to see them in person, albeit from a distance.”
