"Understanding why you have a passion for the arts is a big subject that has to do with the environment and cultural development of humankind; it is wonderful to study. How the arts can serve others is also a story that needs learning and telling. But discovering that the arts work as regenerative agents for humans both ill and healthy and that they help us truly care for ourselves and one another is too great a treasure to be left in the margins of academia. Arts in Medicine at UF brings this front and center with tenderness, intelligence, and vitality."
