(Click through to view the YouTube video!)

Last Spring a residency grant from The State of Maine Arts Commission allowed for a project in a Chemotherapy Center. With over 130 surveys my team showed, patients were less stressed and nurses less fatigued due to the artist’s presence.

Betsy Parks-Stamm, Erin McGee Ferrell, and Robyn Courtois- Colby pleased to report that our research project sponsored by New England Cancer Specialists, Maine Arts Commission, and Artists and Craftsman Supply Portland is scheduled for publication in the, “Clinical Journal of Oncology Nursing.”
