The University of Michigan's College of Pharmacy Multicultural Pharmacy Student Association (MPSO), in partnership with the Center for Armenian Studies invites Dr. Samvel Arakelyan to speak about his role as a professional violinist within the Armenian community.

Dr. Arakelyan was born in Yerevan, Armenia, and has been playing the violin and piano since childhood. He uses music not only to bring art and culture into this world, but he also uses it as a platform to advocate for the Armenian community. This event is geared towards having a discussion in which we can use our strengths and passions to advocate about things that are the most important to the communities we belong to. Dr. Arakelyan holds a Doctorate of Musical Arts (DMA) obtained from Michigan State University.

The Multicultural Pharmacy Student Organization (MPSO) focuses on advocating for the awareness and appreciation of different cultures, ethnicities, and identities within the diverse College.

This event is organized by Stella Archiyan, MPSO Director of External Affairs and Doctor of Pharmacy Candidate.

Cosponsored by the Multicultural Pharmacy Student Association (MPSO).
