“Feel Great in ’08!” Series: Art and Medicine

BISBEE, AZ – How are art and medicine related in maintaining health? As part of the Copper Queen Library’s year-long “Feel Great in ’08!” Health Information Series, Arizona Humanities Council Scholar Dr. Robin Solomon will explore this question on February 13 at 6:30pm in the Copper Queen Library Meeting Room as she presents “The Collaboration Between Art and Medicine: Healing, Teaching, Provoking.”

Art can be used as a medium to convey medical themes and to foster personal growth. For the art community, as well as for those interested in healing, this discussion should prove to be quite interesting.

Dr Solomon is currently a Clinical Ethics Fellow at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center in Phoenix, AZ. Her research interests include clinical ethics, the relationship between bioethics and medical humanities, and the ethics of the new biotechnologies.

She is brought to the Copper Queen Library under the auspices of the Friends of the Copper Queen Library and, in part, by a grant from the Arizona Humanities Council.

The presentation is free and open to the public. For further information, contact the Library Circulation Desk at 432-4232.
