Towards an Applied Humanities Alliance: From Research to Field Work


4:00 - 5:30 p.m.

Please join the IHR's Health Humanities Initiative for an afternoon celebration and conversation with Alison Essary, co-director of the Applied Health Humanities Alliance and Clinical Professor in the College of Health Solutions, and Mark Lussier, senior sustainability scholar and Professor of English.


Towards an Applied Humanities Alliance: From Research to Field Work

How can the humanities transform healthcare environments? Alison Essary and Mark Lussier are collaborating to think through how the humanities can address two acute crises in healthcare and medical treatments environments: individual and systemic stress and patient and healthcare worker burnout. Their efforts brought them into contact with a group of like-minded scholars (at Worcester College, Oxford), like-committed healthcare and medical personnel (at the Mayo Clinic) and like-motivated community partners (at Hospice of the Valley), forging an Applied Humanities Alliance (AHA) in the process.
