VCU is pleased to announce the institutional nomination of Semi Ryu with Drs. Egidio del Fabbro, Danielle Noreika, and John Nestler for the 2nd Annual Hamilton International Arts in Health Awards being announced early next month. Recognition in this innovation awards category showcases a project that has positively impacted target populations through the use of media, technology, or creative programming. VoicingHan is an avatar mediated life-review project designed for cancer patients, in a palliative care setting. This project explored how digital art can support the quality of life for cancer patients in palliative care settings through the creative process of life review, facilitated by avatar virtual bodies.
