A Beautiful Remedy profiles the Arts in Medicine Program at the University of Texas MD Anderson Children's Cancer Hospital. Directed by Artist in Residence Ian Cion, Arts in Medicine provides art programming to pediatric, adolescent and young adult patients and their families. How can the making and viewing of art help participants transform their social and physical realities? How do artful encounters enlarge the scope of traditional medical practices? What are the goals of creative programming in healthcare contexts? A Beautiful Remedy is inspired by these questions and illustrates the power of art to foster human resiliency amidst suffering.
