Poetry Health Fair

Each patient carries his own doctor inside him.
~Norman Cousins

I've talked about O, Miami before. They really do it up for National Poetry Month; their mission is to have everyone in Miami come in contact with a poem during April.

Among other things, this year they held a Poetry Health Fair at Miami's Jackson Memorial Hospital.
"Muse-sanctioned poets will be on-hand to diagnose your (qu)ills and dish out healing contemporary poems... Get your eyesight checked with the Poetry Eye Test or have an actual health professional check your glucose levels, blood type, and other useful things to know about one’s body.

Musicians from University of Miami serenade the entire proceedings with live jazz."
