She’s created graphic novels about the adventures of children with visible and invisible disabilities and produced an off-Broadway musical about disabilities and bullying. Levar Burton and The Jim Henson Company are developing two of her projects for the small screen.</p> <p> But she wouldn’t have been able to envision it in her early days as a premed student; back then, she thought building a career in health meant following a narrow professional track. “I remember thinking, okay, maybe I’ll be a physician or teach in a medical school,” she said. “I’d always been creative, but I never thought it would relate to any professional goals I’d have in health.”</p> <p> That changed when she took a developmental psychology class that showed her how rich and exciting the field could be and worked with a professor who helped her realize that creativity could be an asset in health—and not just a passion she pursued on the side.</p> <p> Now, as the director of MMC’s new <a href="/center-for-health-human-development-and-creativity/">Center for Health, Human Development, and Creativity</a>, Dr. Silton is helping Marymount Manhattan students reach that same understanding from the moment they step foot on campus.</p> </div> </div> </div>
