Welcome to RxArt
As an aspiring physician, I am excited to join the RxArt team as an intern this year to learn more about integrating visual art into the hospital environment. While shadowing at the Smilow Cancer Center in New Haven, I began to realize how important both medicine and physical space are to the healing process. After graduating from Yale University with a BA in History of Science, Medicine and Public Health this past May, I decided to take some time before medical school to learn more about this important aspect of patient care. While at RxArt, I hope to use my background to provide a new perspective on the intersection of the arts and science in efforts to make tangible differences in hospitals across the United States. Additionally, I look forward to learning more about the contemporary art scene while living in New York City.
