I became interested in ArtBeat because I personally love to paint and was always drawn to how art can be integrated with medicine in bringing out the humanity aspect of the profession. I believe that in order to keep in touch with the human side of medicine, one needs to consistently practice that perspective through narratives, art, music etc and no better place for that than ArtBeat!
As a co-lead of Synaesthesia, I am responsible for recruiting members from other healthcare professional student groups in order to create an inter-professional art show illustrating all areas of healthcare. We organize the event, book the venue and potential sponsors, recruit alumni, create souvenirs from the show and make sure as many people know about the event as possible!
