Poetry Health Fair

  • Jackson Memorial Hospital, Alamo Park 1611 Northwest 12th Avenue Miami, FL, 33136 United States

Feeling lyrically under the weather? Come have your verse-malaise diagnosed and get an official “poetry prescription” at the first-ever Poetry Health Fair, hosted and co-sponsored by Jackson Memorial Hospital.

Muse-sanctioned poets will be on-hand to diagnose your (qu)ills and dish out healing contemporary poems in English, Spanish and Creole. Get your eyesight checked with the Poetry Eye Test or have an actual health professional check your glucose levels, blood type, and other useful things to know about one’s body.

Musicians from University of Miami serenade the entire proceedings with live jazz.
