How can civic reflection add a personal touch to the relationship between doctor and patient? Join a fascinating conversation on how to transform end-of-life healthcare to a creative and restorative interaction.

Explore how the arts and humanities can be both a restorative and honoring part of care for both the living and the dying, as well as a tool to bridge gaps between health care providers and the populations they serve. Dr.Gregory P. Gramelspacher, Professor of Medicine and Philanthropic Studies at IU School of Medicine, Elizabeth Lynn, founder of the Project on Civic Reflection, and Artur Silva, local artist and cultural advocate, will each give presentations on their work as it relates to the topic followed by a moderated discussion with the audience.

Presented by Wishard Health Services and Indiana Humanities. Event is free, but space is limited. Refreshments served. Questions? Call 317-639-6671 or email
