Medical students, dental students, health professionals/doctors from Edmonton's hospitals will take off their white coats to raise money for several international health-related projects. More specifically, 15 medical students and MDs will pose nude for 25 talented and well known local artists.

The beautiful nude portraits that will result from this celebration of the human body will be auctioned off with proceeds going towards both Change for Children's Community Health Project in El Salvador and international health projects run by IHIMS (International Health Initiatives by Medical Students.) in Tanzania, Kenya, India.

The art produced will encompass many formats from sketches, to paintings, to caricatures. The project also serves to bring recognition to Edmonton's talented art community and an appreciation of the human body to a whole new level!

About: Change for Children in an Edmonton based non-profit, non-governmental organization with over 30 years experience working for sustainable grassroots development in Latin America/Africa.
