Music, dance, visual art, poetry.

The arts inspire us, teach us —Rejuvenate and heal us.

They can challenge what we know about ourselves, our worldview, and our work. We explore the interplay between the art and science of medicine – to shape how we learn, teach, practice, and heal.

In this multimedia contest, our CCCS members shared their creative activities (poetry, essay composition, music, and video presentations) that helped them cope during the pandemic.
