Medicine and Meaning is the online literary journal of the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, featuring creative works from faculty, staff, and students.
Our vision is to foster creativity, imagination, and the arts throughout our academic medical center.
Our UAMS community is full of artistic and creative individuals and our journal is a venue to share these talents and interests with each other and those in Arkansas and around the globe.
We hope you enjoy reading and sharing these stories, poems, essays, and images.
May they inspire you as we work together to improve the health, health care and well-being of Arkansans and of others in the region, nation and the world.
