Aletta Jacobs School of Public Health Innovation Arts in Health

Arts in Health Summer School

The emerging field of arts in health uses creative practices to provide care and to support well-being and illness prevention. Thirty years of scientific research reveals how arts in health empowers people to pursue their own well-being; prevents compassion fatigue among health professionals; and promotes disease prevention and healthy living.

Around the world, demand-driven health systems are unable to keep up with the rising costs and complexity of medical treatments. Growing social demands strain health systems beyond capacity. Arts in health is a new approach for re-humanising the health professions and supporting wellness in our communities.

Students will be introduced to the theory, practical training, and ethics of how the arts contribute to care.
