The Use of Arts in Healing and Medicine: Christopher Bailey from WHO

January 12, 2022

Medicine is a mix of science and art. The art may be obscured by elegant science and spectacular use of technology, but it is there. We are seeing increased interest in the use of arts to promote health and healing.  Far from being distinct realms, art and science intertwine in unexpected ways to promote health and healing. It is this amalgam that we will explore in today’s episode of SoundPractice. We will be talking with Christopher Bailey, Art and Health Lead for the World Health Organization. The World Health Organization (WHO)  helped host a symposium at the Metropolitan Museum of Art focused upon this topic.

Join us for a discussion of evidence-based use of the arts to promote health and healing and social prescribing. This is an important topic with one of the world's foremost experts.
