<strong>KIRKSVILLE, Mo.</strong> (Aug. 18, 2008 ) – <a href=”http://www.atsu.edu/” target=”_blank”>A.T. Still University</a> will host its annual Mini Taste of Kirksville to introduce <a href=”http://www.atsu.edu/kcom/index.htm” target=”_blank”>KCOM</a>’s newest class of medical students to area restaurants and caterers. The event will take place Thursday, August 21 at 4 p.m. at ATSU’s Thompson Campus Center, located at 210 S. Osteopathy.

An event that first-year medical students have been enjoying for nine years, the Mini Taste of Kirksville will feature approximately 19 local restaurants and caterers, the <a href=”http://www.kirksvillechamber.com/” target=”_blank”>Kirksville Area Chamber of Commerce</a>, and a booth for downtown businesses. “This is a win-win opportunity for our students and local restaurants,” said Mini Taste coordinator Virginia Halterman. “New students experience local flavor first hand, and businesses meet their newest patrons.”

Pagliai’s Pizza has joined ATSU-KCOM at the Mini Taste since the inaugural event in 1999, and feels it is a unique opportunity for both students and businesses. “[The Mini Taste] brings all the students and businesses together where we can display our wares,” said Pagliai’s general manager Tony Hamlin.

Other restaurants participating in this year’s event include Kentucky Fried Chicken and A&amp;W, Manhattan Café and Bakery, and Washington Street Java Co.

A student organization fair will be held in conjunction with the Mini Taste event to introduce students to a variety of campus clubs, professional organizations, and leadership opportunities. “Involvement in these organizations allows students to learn about various medical specialties, develop skills important to the practice of medicine, contribute to school policy, and serve both the community and the school,” said second-year student Matt Guymon. “If you’re interested in practicing your skills as a future physician, making a change on campus as a member of student government, or helping people in need in the community, there is something at the fair for everyone.”

For more information about the Mini Taste of Kirksville, contact Virginia Halterman, Communications &amp; Marketing, at 660.626.2544.
