WUIS Health Desk: Art And Meditation As Therapy

This week we launch the “WUIS Health Desk”, which will produce stories looking at various health related topics. We begin with the idea of art, music and meditation as therapy.

As WUIS’ Peter Gray reports, a Springfield artist is using sight and sound to help those suffering from cancer and other ailments manage stress and focus on healing.
