A2: Health

The Wall Street Journal explores the notion of art as an aid in healing, and highlights the experience of Ann Arborite Julia Strecher, who used music and creative writing to help recover from a heart transplant as a child: “It was extremely emotionally healing and freeing. It helped me relieve a lot of stress and provided a distraction from pain and depression.” (The online article includes a photo of Strecher taken by local photographer Myra Klarman.) [Source]
