Inspirational Spotlight: Shikha Jain, MD

Dr. Jain, our inspirational spotlight for the month, serves up drinks in an effort to raise money for the field in which she works, oncology and hematology

Inspiration from Chicago

This week’s inspirational spotlight focuses on a doctor that not only spends her time helping to treat those with cancer, but also spends it raising money for them.

Shikha Jain, MD is a Faculty Hematologist and Oncologist at Northwestern Memorial Hospital.

Dr. Jain may practice medicine in her white doctor’s coat by day, but on a recent April evening, that coat came off as she showed off her mixology skills at the local bar.

MD by Day, Mixologist by Night

No, Dr. Jain did not get a new job.

She volunteered her time at an event called Drinks with Docs, along with other health professionals, as each one stepped behind the bar, in 30 minute blocks, to shake up and stir great cocktails for patrons of a supporting local restaurant, Bridge House Tavern (www.bridgehousetavern.com) in Chicago, Illinois.

Proceeds For a Good Cause

All tips received for the mixology superstars were then donated to the AYA, or Adolescent and Young Adult (AYA), program of the Lurie Cancer Center of Northwestern (www.cancer.northwestern.edu/ayao) to help those adolescents struggling with cancer during April’s Cancer Awareness Month.

How amazing is that?

Thanks to Dr. Jain and to the others who give their time to help out others in need.
