For most people, the link between the arts and health is a crooked line, but take a closer look and you can find many examples of the arts playing a role in health and wellbeing. This idea, “Incorporating the Arts to Improve the Health and Wellbeing of Washington, D.C.” is what brought out community leaders and clinicians to the 6th Annual Rodham Institute Summit.
Kenneth Harwood, PhD, PT, director of the Health Care Quality Program, research director for the PT Program, and associate professor of clinical research and leadership at SMHS, co-authored a paper that received the 2019 John M. Eisenberg Article-of-the-Year in Health Services Research.
SMHS was selected by the Commonwealth of Virginia Department of Education as a recipient of the 2019 Creating Excellence Business & Industry Partnership Award for Region 4. The awards are presented annually to recognize exemplary programs and partnerships.
The Health Care Quality Program at the GW School of Medicine and Health Sciences is among the first four programs to receive national certification by the Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Management Education.
