Explore Medicine’s Creative Side, October 20-22, 2022
The University of Iowa Roy J. and Lucille A. Carver College of Medicine will host the 16th annual conference focusing on the links between medicine and the arts.
We feature a refreshing and relaxed atmosphere to take in skill-building workshops and inspiring presentations from the people working to forge that integration. You’ll leave with a new appreciation not only of your art, but of your work (and even your struggles).
Thursday, 10/20 at 7:00 pm, 1505 Seamans Center (open to the public)
