Neighborhood Health Series – The Value & Importance of the Arts in Healthcare

Presented by Dr. Marin Gillis, PhD, LPh

Dr. Marin Gillis presents an overview of the intrinsic and useful value of the arts in healthcare. From literature, writing, music, dance and painting, the arts serve a number of roles for patients and families, providers and students. Dr. Gillis also explains how the arts make medical students into better doctors using examples of a program she started in Nevada in 2008 that is still running, how the arts have therapeutic benefits and can improve the quality of life for people living with dementia, and how the arts can promote health student, resident and provider well-being.
