How can we measure the impact of arts-based interventions on health, care, and wellbeing? Join us for the first in a series of conversations on advancing research on the health benefits of the arts. These conversations are hosted by Arts & Health @ NYU and co-produced in partnership with the World Health Organization Arts and Health Program and CultuRunners as part of Healing Arts New York, a series of events featuring leading artists, researchers, policy makers innovating at the intersections of arts and health.

This first conversation will be presented by Frontiers, a leading open access publisher with a mission to make science open. This conversation will feature research recently published in Frontiers in Psychology on the physiological and psychological benefits of the arts.

Hosts: Prof. Nisha Sajnani (NYU), Chris Bailey (WHO Arts and Health Program), and Frederick Fenter (Frontiers Journals) 

Research Topic Co-Chairs: Prof. Vicky Karkou (Edge Hill) and Prof. Jennifer Drake (Brooklyn College)
