Does the art around us have an impact on our emotions and the way we care for others? In this episode we discuss how art, even inside of medical facilities, has had an impact on the patients and health care workers. 

We feature highlights from the Artistic Patient Advocate Ted Meyer and Sound Engineer Brian Bender.  Ted Meyer explains how he uses artist to heighten doctors' empathy for patients.  Brian Bender gives us insight into how he uses music as a tool to create emotion.
