Dr. Singh’s name may seem familiar–chances are if you are a Rhode Islander, you or some you know has been operated on by him. At Rhode Island Hospital in Providence, RI, where he has practiced since 1975, Dr. Singh helped to build a nationally-recognized cardiac surgery program. He has personally performed more than 15,000 documented heart surgeries along with another 5,000 related procedures—more than nearly every surgeon in history. Join us as Dr. Singh shares his encouraging and inspiring true story on how a boy from India overcame a difficult childhood and devastating hand injuries and became one of the most prolific cardiac surgeons in U.S. history. There will be copies of his book, Your Heart, My Hands, available for purchase and signing. Please register. Here is Dr. Arun Singh’s Rhode Island Heritage Hall of Fame Acceptance Speech.
