Over a year ago, we hosted our first ever Poetry as Medicine Cafe. These poets, who are also Davis Phinney Foundation Ambassadors, shared what they learned, what they had written, and how poetry was becoming medicine to help them live well with Parkinson’s.
This year, they’ve come back and shared even more about how they’ve grown as learners, thinkers, and poets. Watch the second Poetry as Medicine Cafe to hear their latest work and get inspired to pen a few of your own.
