3rd Annual Arts and Humanities in Medicine Symposium

This symposium will seek to improve cross-disciplinary communication and enhance general knowledge of arts and humanities offerings and their benefits so that clinicians can incorporate them into their plan of care and patients can have a more positive experience.
