About Carol Herron, Arts In Medicine program coordinator

I've been fortunate to grow the Arts in Medicine Program at Texas Children's Cancer Center since its inception in 1997.

With a Master's degree in Recreation Therapy, experience in psychiatric health care and physical rehabilitation, and a passion for including the arts in the healing process, my experience at Texas Children's has been an incredible journey. Today, we have over 90 volunteers and artists from community arts organizations large and small.
