Poetry in Medicine

The Creative Expression in Health and Medicine (formerly called Poetry in Medicine) competition gives students, faculty, and staff at the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine and the Jefferson College of Health Education, along with students from Virginia Tech, the chance to express themselves artistically. The annual competition, held in the spring, is sponsored by the Tuberculosis Foundation of Virginia and the Community High School for Arts and Academics.

Dr. Molly O'Dell, a poet and director of the New River Health District, created the program in 2013.
