Heartfelt thanks to a creative team!

Distributed by University of Toronto Press

This publishing project  has been a year in the making and it has been a busy month working with the team at  Brush Education on last minute editing details for our upcoming book Creative Arts in Humane Medicine which is expected to be released in October.  As Editor of the book, Creative Arts in Humane Medicine,  I have been fortunate to work with some of the best editors in the Canadian publishing industry among them, Brush managing editor, Lauri Seidlitz and copy editor par excellence, Leslie Vermeer.  I want to extend heartfelt  thanks as well to our talented cover designer Carol Dragich of Dragich Design  (an important feature of our unique cover is the photography /artwork "Peace of Heart"  by medical student and photographer  Cyrus McEachern, which was featured in  the Heartfelt Images exhibit at the University of British Columbia, Cardiology.) Our creative cover is, in itself,  another fine example of the arts and medicine in action.  CM
