In 2007, the College of Physicians of Philadelphia collaborated with the Society for the Arts in Healthcare to co-host a highly successful educational event at the College. Although a formal component of the Society's annual conference, this event--with its prominent artists presenting on medicine-informed painting, poetry, and fiction--also attracted a large local audience of very diverse interests, from academic to more patient-centered perspectives. As Chair of the College's Section on Medicine and the Arts, I worked closely with the estimable Executive Director of the Society, Anita Boles, to fund, stage, and present this ambitious arts-in-medicine event. In every step of this collaborative endeavor, I found Anita and other key Society leaders to be perfect partners in every way--inspiring, creative, and thoroughly professional. From continuing discussions since that time, it's clear to me that the Society has strengthened still further in recent years and I would strongly encourage anyone considering either membership or collaboration.
