Arts in Medicine: April 2019

April is National Poetry Month, so we dedicate our April theme issue of in-House to the arts. Simply, we publish resident- or fellow-produced art in any medium, including but not limited to traditional media, music, photography, poetry, prose, film, dance, or any other form of artistic expression.
