Dartmouth-Hitchcock Arts and Humanities Symposium
First Annual Dartmouth-Hitchcock Arts and Humanities in Medicine Symposium: The current state of the arts and humanities in medicine research and programming.
Sponsored by the Department of Neurology and the Gertrude H. Mertens fund of the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Arts Program.
This innovative symposium will highlight arts and humanities research projects and programs that are active at Dartmouth-Hitchcock, Dartmouth College and the Hood Museum, as well as future opportunities for collaboration.
Keynote Speaker: Heather Stuckey, D.Ed, Associate Professor of Medicine, Humanities and Public Health sciences at Penn State College of Medicine, is the keynote speaker. Dr. Stuckey’s research focuses on improving the education, self-management support and psychological distress of people with diabetes and other chronic disease. Using medical humanities-based models and problem-solving techniques, she works with qualitative methods (narrative, video, arts-based inquiry, observations, interviews, focus groups) to determine how adults make meaning of their illness and how the medical community can respond to support patients and their families.
