Arts & health

Using the arts to enhance your experienceand families

The arts - whether music, movement, literature or visual art - provide a channel for exploring emotions and an outlet for reflection and respite. At Novant Health, the arts provide a holistic dimension to medical care, enhancing patient recovery, caregiver health and forming a bridge to healing. Arts programming places human connection at the forefront of every interaction - touching participants in a way that complements yet transcends traditional care approaches. Results of participation in arts programming is measurable, and has been shown to reduce pain, shorten length of stay, and provide a better quality of life.
