We are pleased to announce a new award by USC Arts in Action!

Virtual Reality Memorial for Gynecologic Cancer Patients is spearheaded by Dr. Mona Guo, MD, of Keck School of Medicine of USC, and Marientina Gotsis, professor at the USC School of Cinematic Arts and director of the USC Creative Media and Behavioral Health Center. Keck School of Medicine Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology and Cinematic Arts students will join the team to co-design “Celebration of Life” workshops for end-of-life gynecologic cancer patients from the LA General Medical Center Gynecologic Oncology Clinic for emotional care and to create a VR legacy experience. The goal is to bring patients and loved ones together in a celebration of life and bridge the gap between healthcare providers and patients.
