Hope Torrents is the Museum Educator and Director of the Fine Art of Healthcare program at the Lowe Art Museum, University of Miami where she’s worked since 1999. In 2010 her husband was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Over a six year period her husband was in and out of the hospital a total of 45-50 times.
Hope’s own work with The Lowe Art Museum’s Fine Art of Healthcare is a small step in trying to prepare future healthcare providers to be better observers, communicators and have a much more holistic view of their patients and families. Hope’s interest in creating a book club on well-being was in part propelled by her frustration with the medical system especially in the fields of compassion, visual acuity, de-biasing, and collaboration.
