Poetry Pharmacy

Poetry Pharmacy [noun]: a place where medicinal poems are dispensed.

The Poetry Pharmacy, located inside the Compassion Center at Banner-University Medical Center Phoenix, is curated by Dr. Rosemarie Dombrowski, founding director of Revisionary Arts, in collaboration with medical students who practice the art of communication, reflection, and healing through poetry.

The Poetry Pharmacy features a range of “poetic prescriptions” – from poems that generate mindfulness and hope, to poems that foster resilience and healing.

We encourage you to peruse our database of “scripts” and find one that’s right for you (or a colleague, patient, or friend).
