415 Elmwood Ave, Rochester, NY 14642


The Changing Perspectives Through the Arts series is a collaboration of The Department of Health Humanities and Bioethics, Eastman Performing Arts Medicine, and Rochester community organizations. Each month, typically on the second Friday, we host artists who share how their work helps to facilitate difficult conversations, and how art can be a catalyst for changing perspectives. 

All sessions will be hosted on zoom, and when possible, also hosted live in K207 of the Medical School. 

CME is available for these events. Please indicate on the zoom registration that you are requesting credit.
