During her gastrointestinal rotation at Mount Sinai Hospital in Chicago, MS4 Ross University School of Medicine student Manavi Johri discovered an opportunity to use her artistic abilities for a good cause. Manavi designed a poster for The American College of Gastroenterology’s “Tune It Up” concert, an event organized to raise awareness for the new guidelines for colon cancer screening.
“This was especially important to me personally to raise awareness, since a close family friend was diagnosed with metastatic colon cancer at 49, and had the guidelines been to start screening at 45, they could have caught it earlier,” said Manavi, who will soon enter her internal medicine residency.
The March 31 virtual concert attracted viewers from across the country to hear featured performers such as Lisa Loeb, Kerry Ellis and Rufus Wainwright. View a recording of the concert and learn more about colorectal cancer screening on the American College of Gastroenterology website.
