About Art and Med
Art and Med is a collaborative catalyst for change in healthcare, to improve the experiences of patients, medical students and healthcare providers. Our aim is to bring patient voices, often times marginalized and unheard, into every aspect of medical care and education.
We believe the lived experiences of both patients and medical providers play a critical role in the creation of twenty-first century healthcare. Art and Med facilitates patient/artist exhibits and lecture series pairing artists and other creatives with medical professionals. We produce video and live interviews between doctors and patients for various websites. We also provide a patient SWAT team to represent that patient voice at cutting-edge medical conventions.
