Hindu Prayer Room - Bingham Hall Lower Level via Entryway D See map

Discussion Topic: “Seva in the Slums: A personal journey volunteering with FXB”

This evening’s program will include the last of three Dharmic Discussions in our spring series.  Our guest speaker, Dr. Prasad, is familiar and dear to our community. If you do not know her you are likely familiar with her handiwork; Dr. Prasad created the elegant rose petal rangoli for our Diwali celebration last Fall. We will also honor our graduating seniors and perform an aarati to Maha Saraswati as we finish up our academic obligations for the semester. 

Seva, or selfless service, is considered a primary duty among Hindus. Dr. Prasad will discuss her volunteer work in India with FXB Suraksha , a non-profit organization, which works on building communities and empowering women and children. Dr. Prasad will provide an insider’s portrait of how she as a US physician intersects and supports these communities. She will also discuss the array of volunteer opportunities available through FXB.

Dr Sujata Prasad is a practicing internist and Fellow of the American College of Physicians. She is a clinical instructor at the Yale School of Medicine and a mentor to the residents of the Primary Care program.

A catered Indian dinner follows the aarati.

**This event is free and open to the Yale community only**
