A big THANK YOU! to Dr. György Baffy, Dr. Ildikó Halász, MD, and Dr. Ágnes Virga, MD for hosting Thursday’s screening of Freedom Dance (featuring Mariska Hargitay) and lecture on how cartoon art contributes to a healing process.

Harvard Medical School lecture — the healing power of cartoons

April 24, 2015

I was recently invited to speak at Harvard Medical School on how cartoon art contributes to a healing process. Many thanks to Dr. John Peteet for this honor. His course on Spirituality and Healing in Medicine, and his students, are a true delight. It’s great to see the school’s interest in the role the arts play in the healing process.

Many thanks for a wonderful evening!
