Hearts Need Art – The importance of engaging those who are aging

Updated on
"As an adolescent leukemia survivor, I learned very quickly one of the least expensive, most powerful ways to help heal the human body, mind, and spirit."
 The Mavericks sit down with Constanza Roeder, Founder & CEO of Hearts Need Art!
Art is so critical to many of us to engage with our thoughts and desires. This desire doesn’t cease as we age. We must honor the need for creative support for patients, residents, care partners, and the like. Constanza is an incredible advocate for humanizing healthcare through the arts.
In this episode, we talk about
  • How the arts support healthy aging
  • But I’m not an artist? The joy of doing bad art and rediscovering creative expression.
  • What is the role of an artist in healthcare?
Constanza is the recipient of the 2018 Graceann Durr Humanitarian Award and was selected as one of the Top 100 Healthcare Visionaries by the International Forum on Advancements in Healthcare for 2021. Her work has been featured in various publications such as ThriveGlobal, Authority Magazine, Ticker News, National Association of Teachers of Singing, and the cover of MD News Magazine.
