The Georgetown Lombardi Arts and Humanities Program (AHP) promotes a holistic approach to healthcare for patients, caregivers, physicians, nurses, staff members and visitors through the use of music, dance, expressive writing and visual arts.
These four therapeutic modalities are provided throughout the MedStar Georgetown University Hospital (MGUH) by professional, trained and experienced artists. All artists are paid by the AHP, allowing their valued services to be shared free-of-charge to patients, caregivers, staff members and visitors throughout MGUH.
For three decades, the Georgetown Lombardi Arts and Humanities Program has been helping patients at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital navigate the difficulties of their illnesses by embracing the arts.
The AHP’s professional artists-in-residence work in public spaces in MGUH such as the Lombardi Cancer Clinic Outpatient Waiting Rooms, as well as providing one-on-one visits to patients and group focused therapeutic offerings to MGUH staff members (e.g. stretch breaks, painting workshops, etc.).
The AHP artists-in-residence affect and visit many people throughout MGUH on a daily basis. The Program receives many phone and emailed requests for artists’ visits. If you support the work the AHP does in living Georgetown University’s mission of “Cura Personalis,” or care of the whole person, please consider directly contacting AHP Faculty Director, Julia Langley at (202) 444-7228 or firstname.lastname@example.org to make a contribution today.
We appreciate all of your support and interest in the AHP. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!
