“Medicine and the Arts” makes connections between artistic production and the health sciences, examining the historical, linguistic, cultural and aesthetic contexts in which we engage in and with healthcare. The course will place particular emphasis on implementing narrative medicine approaches to health within Appalachia. Through a one-of-a-kind service-learning project tied to a grant-funded project in the cancer infusion clinic at WVU Cancer Institute, students will acquire, integrate, and synthesize knowledge of artistic expression across disciplines to see its potential to enhance medicine and healthcare.
