Arts & Health

The Arts and Health initiative is a pioneering collaboration that connects VCUarts to the VCU School of Medicine and VCU Health to solve some of the most complex challenges in health care. From using actors portraying patients to practice empathy and communication, to creative expression that builds resiliency and prevents physician burnout, VCU seeks to foster a revelatory understanding of the interconnections between arts and health in the context of human flourishing.
