Armenian culture is a legacy we have been given and build on, but it is not limited to art. It is multilayered and encompasses even science and medicine. On February 24, 2021, the Hamazkayin Kamishly (Qamishli) Avedis Aharonian Chapter hosted a medical lecture. Chapter Executive Board member Ruzan Bedrosian spoke briefly about the mission and role of Hamazkayin. She then invited the keynote speaker, Dr. Sirvart Sarkisian-Shirikjian, to speak.
Dr. Sarkisian-Shirikjian taught powerful and contemporary medical information to the assembled guests, enriching the culture of medical knowledge among Armenian mothers and sisters. After a question-and-answer period, a reception was held. Based on the demand of the guests, a second medical talk was scheduled for the next week.
