Over the long span of history, every culture on Earth has expressed itself through the arts. Much more recently, science has been able to explain just how music, dance, theatre, the visual arts, and so many other modalities can improve our physical and mental health and wellbeing. Health, Medicine & Society is helping to deepen human understanding of how we can use the arts to advance individual and community health and elevating storytelling as a tool to educate and engage diverse audiences.
