Students, faculty and staff were treated to a lunchtime recital hosted by the Keck Music Society recently. The March 20 event at Mayer Auditorium featured medical students and faculty members performing a variety of musical pieces for the audience.

The recital is part of a program sponsored by local philanthropist Elaine Sarkaria, EdD, who — on behalf of herself and her late husband Daljit Sarkaria, MD, — has designated a charitable remainder trust gift to the Humanities, Ethics, Arts, and the Law (HEAL) program at the Keck School of Medicine of USC.
