Allison LaRussa

Director of Health Humanities


Allison began working at The Wright Center in 2021 as the Director of Health Humanities, promoting healthy workforce development cross-departmentally through creating and overseeing humanities based experiences for staff, patients, and community. The Health Humanities program aims to increase wellness, instill healthy social interactions, alleviate stress, and mitigate burnout through various art and mindfulness activities. In many interactions, she has seen a transformational change in the way individuals process and experience their emotions from the sessions. In her new role, AVP, Health Humanities, Trauma-Informed Sanctuary Frameworks, and Justice, Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging, Allison continues to foster resilience and provide education, awareness, and resources to JEDIB through her workshops. Allison believes in creating safe and inclusive spaces where individuals can explore their minds and body through creativity, thrive, and live into their most authentic selves. She believes there is an artist and creator within all of us, and through expression, we discover who we are.
