What Healthcare Can Learn from Street Artists

Short form solo talk
Vanessa Ruiz

Healthcare today is full of technology solutions aimed at engaging patients, but it’s ultimately starving for art. It hasn’t always been that way. Throughout the centuries artists have played a pivotal role in engaging the general public in the knowledge and awe of the human body. This talk takes us on a visual journey of how artists are reinvigorating anatomical imagery outside of the confines of the medical world and creating a potential to create meaningful engagement via healthcare technology.
