Virtual Art and Poetry Showcase

Express Yourself!

During this COVID-19 pandemic where isolation and loneliness is as major aspect of life, art (sculpting, poetry, painting, etc.) is a fun way to support your wellness.  A recent article from NPR explains how making art helps your brain.

Below is a showcase of art and poetry submitted by our own UCSF Fresno faculty, residents and staff.

This past winter, the National Academy of Medicine put out a nationwide call for artists of all skills and abilities to submit artwork that expresses how clinicians, their loved ones, patients, and organizations experience and are affected by clinician burnout and well-being. Artists were asked to answer the question: What does clinician well-being look, feel, and sound like to you? Over 350 people responded. 

We are thrilled to share 100 of these pieces with you through our permanent digital gallery, which aims to promote greater awareness and understanding of barriers to clinician well-being and to highlight potential solutions to protect and promote the well-being of clinicians of all kinds, including doctors, nurses, pharmacists, dentists, and others.
