Our journaling program offers individual and group sessions to patients and their family members on cardiology, oncology, organ transplant, inpatient psychiatry and birthing units.
Poetry in the Halls is modeled after projects that placed poetry in New York and London transit centers. This program brings peace and reflection to public spaces at Duke University Hospital and clinics. Fifty poems have been permanently installed throughout the hospital’s many waiting areas and hallways.
This collection features works by locally and nationally recognized writers, including poems by our own patients and staff. The Poetry in the Halls project was made possible through the generous support of the North Carolina Arts Council and the Duke Medical Alumni Association.
