Midsouth Foodbank is Looking for Volunteers

|

Come Volunteer with your fellow UTHSC friends at the Midsouth Food Bank on two more dates, including April 17th and April 24th. We will be volunteering from 1:00pm-3:00pm and transportation will be provided. Follow the link below to register today. Volunteers will work in our Volunteer HUB on different tasks, as needed. Our most common task will be sorting through donated food, checking for package quality, and ensuring the product is “in date”. Volunteers will then sort the product into different categories, then box and pallet those categories. https://uthsc.givepulse.com/event/432747-midsouth-foodbank-volunteer-opportunity

Using Third-Party AI Tools for Meeting Summaries and Notetaking

While we are eager to embrace AI to help us do our work, we should do so thoughtfully. You also may be tempted to use one of the many “free” versions of AI assistants available on the web, but these could pose privacy and security concerns.
