Announcing Health Disparities Residency

November 23, 2020

We are pleased to announce a new collaboration between A Studio in the Woods and Dillard University’s Minority Health and Health Disparities Research Center. Dr. Sacoby Wilson, (Associate Professor, Applied Environmental Health and the UMD Prevention Research Center at the University of Maryland, College Park) will work remotely with Dillard faculty members John Barnes (Associate Professor of Visual Arts, Dillard University) and Keith Morris (Associate Professor of Film, Dillard University), and four Dillard independent study students over the course of the Spring 2021 semester to create film and art works about COVID-19 and health disparities in our region. The project will culminate in April 2021 with a one-week residency at A Studio in the Woods for Dr. Wilson and the Dillard team to work together to finalize the works.
