Ian Koebner, Director, Integrative Pain Management and Clinical Instructor, Division of Pain Medicine at UC Davis, will give a talk exploring the potential role of museums as partners in public health. Koebner will speak about his research on Art Rx, an innovative collaboration initiated in 2013 between the Crocker Art Museum and the Integrative Pain Management Program. Koebner’s talk will cover pain research, the specialized experiences offered through Art Rx, and the philosophy of aesthetics and museology.
