The Aim of Texas Children's Cancer Center and Hematology Service's Arts In Medicine (AIM) Program
The primary goal of the AIM Program is to provide enjoyable, educational and meaningful artisitic opportunities to patients and their families.
Artistic activities by and for children create opportunities for self expression, empowerment and development of coping skills. Making music, singing songs, performing dance, producing plays, writing and telling stories, and decorating spaces with visual art enhances the healing environment and treatment experience. AIM supplies art exposure in a variety of settings including outpatient and inpatient care areas.
Key components of the AIM Program include:
In association with Baylor College of Medicine and Texas Children's Hospital, the AIM Program is an integral part of the Texas Children's Cancer Center and Hematology Service's mission of providing comprehensive care in a child centered environment.
