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.

December 2 - Davy Ran - The Medium of Madness

Creativity and “madness” are often considered an inseparable pair. What role does mental illness play in our ability to produce art? What role does it play in the type of art we produce? Finally, how can we bring the psychological lessons taught by our artistic predecessors into our own experiences of art and health?

Davy Ran MSc MPH is an artist, writer, and 4th year medical student whose overarching goal is to help recruit, support, and mentor other minorities in medicine and ultimately make healthcare a more humanistic and equitable space. They are currently in the process of publishing "At Capacity," a book of short stories about being a multiple-minority medical student as part of a Medical Humanities Fellowship.
