Tachy raises more than just heart rates!

Friday, May 11, 2012

Schulich Medicine & Dentistry would like to extend a big congratulations to the students, staff, community members, and patrons who were involved in and supported Tachycardia this year.

The three evenings of music, comedy and entertainment from Schulich Medicine & Dentistry's talented medical students raised more than just heart rates; an incredible $23,451.55 was raised for the Regional HIV/AIDS Connection (RHAC) this year.

This brings the total that Tachycardia has raised for RHAC over the last six years to over $135,000.

Tachycardia is a 57-year tradition that lets Western medical students give back to London and the medical community. Since its inception in 1955, Tachycardia has given thousands of students a chance to showcase their musical and theatrical talents and help raise funds for charitable causes.

Annually, the show has over 1,500 attendees, drawing audiences including area physicians and medical residents.

Congratulations to all involved!
