Literature & Medicine in Illinois

Since 2003, the Illinois Humanities Council has run its Literature & Medicine: Humanities at the Heart of Healthcare program at three suburban Illinois hospitals.

In preparation for the expansion of the program to Mt. Sinai, Rush, and Stroger Cook County hospitals in Chicago, the Council is holding a one-day orientation for site team members and other health care professionals who would like to learn more about the program.
