The arts can play an important role in the rehabilitation of those who’ve suffered both mental and physical trauma, from stroke sufferers to survivors of domestic violence. As part of WFUV's Strike a Chord campaign, we conducted a panel discussion at BronxNet Television.  Our guests included:

  • Suzanne Tribe, a music therapist who works with the Healing Arts program at Montefiore Health System.
  • Lindsay Aaron, an art therapist at Montefiore. She works with adult patients within the oncology and palliative care departments.
  • Ariel Edwards, Community Arts Director at the Clay Art Center in Port Chester, New York.  The Clay Art Center has a workshop for people living with cancer.
  • Dolores Anselmo, someone who benefits from the Clay Art Center.
