Delores Gulledge’s daughter passed away in 1990. This eventually led Delores to found Arts As Medicine, a program that uses visual, tactile and movement arts, writing, drama, and dance to express emotions brought on by grief. Gulledge has helped thousands of other grieving individuals by sharing her own story of loss through Arts As Medicine as well as part of a team at the Richland County Coroner’s Office. Through this work, Delores seeks to inspire hope in those who have suffered a loss, hope that they too might be able to get through the difficult times that life has shown them.
