Conference ID



Across the nation, there is a rising convergence of the arts and health care. Center Stage at Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center enhances the health care experience by showcasing art, music and creativity that calms, nurtures and inspires. Staff members seek ways to enhance the well-being of individuals who come through the doors, whether they are patients, visitors, health care providers, caregivers, employees or students.

Staff at Center Stage are founding members and leadership of the National Organization for Arts in Health (NOAH), whose vision is “arts are integral to health and wellbeing” and whose mission is “to unite, advance and serve the field of arts in health.”

In an effort to support the NOAH initiative on a regional level, Center Stage is hosting this symposium to bring together representatives from across Pennsylvania to elevate the field of arts in health.

Portions of this activity are sponsored in part by the Office for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at Penn State College of Medicine.
