  • Thursday, November 15 - Sikhism in Medicine (12pm)

Sikhism is the world's fifth largest religion, and there is a large Sikh community here in the Phoenix area. However, many people, including physicians and those on our campus are not aware of the Sikh religion. As part of the mission of medical education is to cultivate culturally sensitive and aware physicians, it is vital to educate the campus on this topic through a lunch talk. A Sikh physician will be speaking about Sikhism, what it is like to be a Sikh physician, and things to consider when caring for Sikh patients.

Speaker: Jaswant Singh Sachdev, MD - Neurology, Carl T Hayden Va Medical Center
