The Human Touch 2020 

2020 THT web banner

The Human Touch 2020 is the thirteenth annual anthology of poetry, prose, photography and graphic art from the Anschutz Medical Campus community at the University of Colorado.  This year's edition is only available online, due to the pandemic. The publication is edited by Anschutz campus students, and is published under the auspices of the Arts and Humanities in Healthcare Program at the Center for Bioethics and Humanities. 

We are extremely fortunate and thankful for the support of an alumnus of the School of Medicine, for the ongoing support that he and his family have committed to support The Human Touch. ​ If you have any questions, feel free to contact the student editors, Brenna Cameron, Amelia Davis and David Sabio at
