Sonke-Henderson will discuss assessing the effectiveness of technology- based arts interventions on pain and symptom management in pediatric patients with cancer and sickle cell disease.

Florida's Project HeArts & Hope is designed to improve the well-being of ill children in and out of hospitals through a secure network that offers arts programming, palliative care and peer mentoring. Working with artists and technology partners from around the country, the university is creating a network of streaming video resources.

The project will test the impact of video streaming via LAN, and a menu-driven interface as tools to evaluate symptoms and determine levels of pain and anxiety.

The lecture is sponsored by U-M's "This is Your Brain" Project, Gifts of Art, and the Life Sciences, Values, and Society Program.
