Shakespeare in Health

Shakespeare’s “four humors” are not about comedy, but about the physical qualities that determined the behavior of all living things. The USF Shimberg Health Sciences Library has a National Institutes of Health exhibit examining Shakespeare’s ties to medicine on display. We drop by the library to find out how USF uses the humanities to create more well-rounded medical practitioners on University Beat on WUSF 89.7.
