Art Cart program allows students to engage in creative volunteer role
Wednesday, February 22, 2017
Kathryn Hinojosa coordinates Art Cart, a program that provides art and crafts activities for volunteers to do with pediatric patients at University Hospital. She knows firsthand the effect a simple art project can have on a child in the hospital.
In one case, a nurse reported that a little boy had been complaining of pain before his Art Cart visit but did not request pain relief afterward.
“He completely forgot that he had pain,” Hinojosa recalled.
Hinojosa will give a presentation on the Art Cart program as part of the Interprofessional Lecture Series. view more
