Loyd presents at conference
PELLA — Elaina Loyd, a native of Winfield and sophomore English major at Central College in Pella, presented at the Examined Life Conference at the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine on April 12.
The title of her paper was “Efficacy of Art Therapy,” which she wrote as part of the Illness and Health in Literature course at Central.
The conference focused on the links between the science of medicine and the art of writing.
“I enjoyed presenting my essay to an audience that was familiar with the subject of art therapy,” said Loyd.
“I especially enjoyed the question-and-answer session,” she continued, “because the questions that we asked made me think about ideas I had brought up in my essay in a different way.”
