The Faculty of Health Sciences inaugural Cultural Week

The Faculty of Health Sciences held its first ever cultural week organized by the Association of Medical Students University of Nairobi (AMSUN) Art club. The event brought together medical students who got a chance to showcase their different talents during the week.

AMSUN Art is a club dedicated to providing a platform for medical students to express their talents and network with like-minded individuals. The week was packed full of interesting exhibitions, workshops and was crowned by a prom night.

The event was officially opened by Prof. Julius Oyugi who represented the Dean. In his speech, Prof. Oyugi emphasized on the need to diversify as medical students through knitting their talents and medical training, to deliver more effective treatment and care for patients.

The primary objective of the event was to celebrate and appreciate the diverse cultures within the community through creative expressions of art. Additionally aiming towards fostering a sense of unity among students and promote cultural awareness.

The AMSUN Art club launched the FHS Art gallery within the school premises that allows for not only students but also other members of staff to display their artwork. A cultural seminar was also a significant highlight of the week where teaching staff had a chance to give talks on integrating art in medicine and cultural practices in relation to medicine.

The event has set pace for hopefully bigger and better events for the AMSUN Art club and the faculty at large.
