- Henry Chou (MS4) chouh @ iupui...
- Henry was born in Taiwan but now lives in Indianapolis to avoid the long overseas commute to school. He is thoroughly enjoying his clinical rotations, which is a problem because he still cannot decide on a career path. He has narrowed down his options to emergency medicine, otolaryngology, pediatrics, plastic surgery, general surgery, and musical street performance, in no particular order. Henry has participated in EOTA as a performer and emcee, and he is honored for this opportunity as a co-chair to further the charitable aims of EOTA. In a parallel universe, he is having a blast drawing, making music videos, and saving orphans.
- Selyne Samuel (MS4) sesamuel @ iupui...
- Selyne is an original Naija girl (born in Nigeria)! She participated in EOTA performing in Indian dances as both an MS1 and MS2. She also coordinated a fashion show as an MS2. She believes that art is not just an expression of one's talent but a medium to increase understanding of different cultural backgrounds while being entertained. She enjoys dancing of course, listening to music, chilling with family and friends, and anything exciting except bungee jumping! She is proud to be a part of EOTA because our proceeds from EOTA and its art auction go towards assisting several clinics in Indianapolis.
- Arthy Saravanan (MS4) saravana @ iupui...
- Arthy got involved with EOTA as an MS1 choreographing an Indian dance. Her enjoyment and happiness led her to choreograph a second Indian dance number as an MS2. Arthy is herself an Indian classical dancer for over 10 years. She enjoys the different aspects of dance, especially thefact that a good dancer can effectively demonstrate his or her emotions through body language and facial expression. As a true fan of the arts and artistic talent, Arthy got involved with Evening of the Arts as a co-chair. She appreciates the efforts of the Indianapolis community to support charity organizations and feels grateful to be a part of this program. As one of her wise friends Henry points out, you cannot spell Arthy without Art!
- Anand Shah (MS3) shaha @ iupui...
- Anand is a second year student at Indiana University School of Medicine. Anand has an extreme respect of the arts and artists, and he attempts to contribute to the Artsy-world through various forms of Indian dance. Anand has choreographed and performed in Evening of the Arts his first and second years and has enjoyed teaching his fellow classmates various forms of Indian dance. In his spare time, he realizes that he should be studying and signs off Facebook only to return to reading Pharmacology. Anand hopes to one day take the doctoring gig on the road and serve as a concierge doctor to Bollywood stars like Amitabh Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai (google them if you dont know who they are).
- Anita Turk (MS3) email@example.com
- Anita is a second year student at the IUSM Indianapolis campus. Anita took the opportunity to share her culture by getting involved with EOTA last year. She participated in the Indian dance (choreographed by the great Anand Shah!) and shared her Pakistani background by wearing a salwar kameez in the fashion show. Her increasing involvement is due to her love and respect for the arts as well as an excuse to avoid studying for Pathology! She hopes to help the community by increasing the involvement of the Indianapolis community with EOTA by gaining sponsorships from local businesses and publicity.
- Micah Bhatti
- Since he was a first year, Micah has been involved with Evening of the Arts. For the first two years, he was the Backstage Manager, and now he's running the show. Micah is enrolled in the MD/PhD Combined Degree Program, and has indentured himself to IUSM indefinitely. He has completed his first two years of medical school, and his PhD research in the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology. He's back in the clinical wards to finish his last two years of medical school. To lose two hours of your life, just ask him about his doctoral thesis project.
- Joe Frank
- Joe is a third-year medical student and his second year with Evening of the Arts. Joe's love of music was born and raised in concert venues around the country over the last decade. Though he enjoyed his moment in the spotlight as the percussionist in a band in college, he realized that his true talents were to be found in front of or behind the stage. Joe is very proud to be a part of Rock for Riley. Rock for Riley is a benefit concert created by IU School of Medicine students, for the kids at Riley Hospital for Children and fans of good music. The second annual event will be held in September of 2005.
- Jennifer Phan
- Jim Smith
- Jim is a fourth year student at Indiana University School of Medicine. He hails from Staunton, Illinois and came to Indianapolis by way of Champaign, Illinois and the U of I. Jim has performed in Evening of the Arts his first and second years; he also helped organizing the show in 2004. In his spare time he volunteers at the Wheeler Mission, and strongly encourages other medical students involved in EOTA to do the same. Jim is a Bud Man, a Cubs fan, and has been known to paint himself orange and blue for Illini games.
