ArtBeat Interview: A Conversation with Ronna Bloom

Paige Zhang, a medical student and writer at University of Toronto's ArtBeat interviewed me about "poetry, healthcare, and their interesting intersection…” Paige had been to many of my workshops through the Poet in Community program at the university and through the Poet in Residence program at Mount Sinai Hospital. She invited me to be interviewed for ArtBeat, a new blog that aims to "inspire and encourage medical students at the University of Toronto to nourish and express their creativity."

We drank coffee and talked about why poetry is relevant and useful in health care and health care education.
