Claire de Boer

Director, Doctors Kienle Center for Humanistic Medicine, Center Stage Arts in Health, Penn State

Claire has worked in many capacities in education and the arts in mid¬coast Maine, Rotterdam, the Netherlands and Hershey, PA. Since moving to Hershey, she had opportunity to fuse her storyline into one culminating project: founding an Arts in Health organization in a large medical center. She has since developed a reverence for the magic of the performing and visual arts for patients, caregivers, staff and students. She is especially interested in how such a program can fit sustainably and smoothly into a large institution. Her areas of focus are thus program efficiency, funding structure and research strategies.
