The Creative Arts Healthcare Program at UMDNJ-The University Hospital is benefiting the hospital community and beyond by educating staff, patients and the community about the positive impacts of arts in healthcare.  According to the Society for the Arts in Healthcare, arts in healthcare is a diverse, multidisciplinary field dedicated to transforming the healthcare experience by connecting people with the power of the arts at key moments of their lives. This rapidly growing field integrates the arts—including literary, performing, and visual arts and design—into a wide variety of healthcare and community settings for therapeutic, educational and expressive purposes.

  1. There is nothing more important to New Jersey than the arts. I live in south jersey and I can’t tell you how many shows i go to in a single year, especially with philly right across the street. I have even done volunteering in hospitals and nursing homes. Art therapy is a great form of pain management for the soul and mind. I have had family in both UMDNJ and NJPCC facilities over the years. Out of all the drugs given to them Art Therapy worked the best. Both facilities provide Pain Management New Jersey
    in the top quality.
