Night at the (Art) Museum, Nov. 17

You have most likely heard of artists such as Picasso, Michelangelo, Frida Kahlo or Van Gogh, but have you ever wondered how their efforts could impact your practice as a future health care provider?

Creatives in Medicine invites you to an exciting evening at the Akron Art Museum coordinated with Dr. Eliot Mostow and other NEOMED faculty, including Dr. Joseph Zarconi. We will have the opportunity to tour the museum and discuss ideas that may help us become better clinicians while having fun at the same time!

In recent years, understanding the intersection of art and medicine has become increasingly popular; art/music therapy has a proven benefit in patients healing. However, art can also be utilized as a tool to promote provider reflection and diagnostic skills. Leading hospitals and medical schools across the country have implemented museum visits in the student/resident curriculum to encourage creativity, empathy and communication skills.

Join Creatives in Medicine on Thursday, Nov. 17 from 6:00- 7:30 p.m. at the Akron Art Museum to be a part of this movement and get your creative juices flowing!

The evening will consist of exploring a few chosen works of art from the collection, as well as some time to free-roam the galleries! The event is free of charge and light refreshments will be provided. All are welcome to attend, and you DO NOT have to consider yourself as creative/have experience in the art world to be involved in this light-hearted evening :)

If able to attend, reserve your seat by Friday, Nov. 4 at 11:59 p.m.
