The new Arts in Health Research Lab will perform arts-in-health research in New Jersey, develop innovative research strategies, including arts-based research methods, and establish a research plan to assess the health impact of Mason Gross and NJPAC’s productions and programs. The Lab will also engage students in developing research and leadership skills and encourage creativity and interdisciplinary research.
