No Wait Smiles

In 2015, Amishi Desai committed to create a children’s reading program to reduce emotional stress in cancer ward waiting rooms in Washington D.C. Amishi will bring together and train student volunteers to collect books and art supplies necessary to organize story time and art sessions for children and their families. Amishi will partner with the pre-health fraternity Delta Epsilon Mu to enlist volunteers and collect necessary supplies. He will measure success by the numbers of volunteers, cancer ward waiting rooms impacted, and children engaged.
