A visit to the University of Puerto Rico

From September 9-12, I’ll be a guest lecturer/presenter at the University of Puerto Rico, as part of the NEH Project "Humanities and the Healing Arts: Puerto Rico and the Caribbean."  The project’s goal is to develop a Medical Humanities curriculum for the university, using the arts to bring a humanistic perspective into the study and practice of medicine.   

I’ll be presenting to students and faculty of the College of Humanities and the Medical School – showing my own work, talking about my Art & Anatomy class at NYU, and making the case for including visual art and especially drawing in their new curriculum.

I’m excited about the chance to be an advocate for the creative power of drawing – and to spend a week on this beautiful island!  I'll post more after I return.
