Innovative Program at Miami Cancer Institute Gives New Meaning to ‘The Healing Arts’

The practice of medicine is often referred to as “the healing arts.” At Miami Cancer Institute, however, it’s not just the physicians doing the healing but also a group of seven professional artists. These talented artists-in-residence – musicians and singers as well as visual and literary artists – have been at the cancer center every day since April, engaging with patients and helping them harness the healing power of the arts to better cope with their illness and treatment.
