Art and Medicine with Dr. Rob Zachow
A big thanks to RWJMS’s Dr. Rob Zachow for his presentation on April 24, 2017 about art in medicine. In addition to showing samples of his beautiful artwork, Dr. Zachow spoke about how he got started in painting and how he has incorporated his art into his career as a physiologist and educator.
