Health Humanities Initiative

At ASU, Health Humanities works to transcend these disciplinary and institutional boundaries by bringing academics, clinicians, caregivers and students together to address grand social challenges in areas of health and healthcare and to explore strategies for promoting, sustaining and reimagining health and resilience in individuals and communities. 

With the growing interest in refocusing on the human being at the center of American health care, the initiative promotes understanding and scholarship through a new health humanities certificate program, designed to education a new generation of health leaders and professionals, a lecture series and collaborations with physician leading Mayo Clinic's Medical Humanities initiative and the Institute for Humanities Research at ASU.
