Cleveland's health care industry is nationally recognized. So is the region's arts and culture scene. When the two come together, art can heal. In some Cleveland area hospitals, music is being used as a pain reliever - art as a mental stimulator - and architecture as a way to help hospice patients relax. Florence Nightingale linked patients' environment to their well-being, but can music actually make us feel good? Join host Ida Lieszkovszky Hargitai morning at 9:00 on The Sound of Ideas.
