Creative for Health

UF Health Shands Arts in Medicine and UF HealthStreet presents:

Creative for Health Art and Writing Workshops

Nothing feels better than to fully immerse yourself in an art project.  The world around you falls away.  Time passes pleasantly without notice.

Research also suggests that creativity is good for our health.  Regular practice has been shown to reduce the harmful effects of stress, improve immune system function, and help us cope with anxiety and depression.

Uncover your creativity by joining artists and writers with the UF Health Shands Arts in Medicine program in exciting, inspirational activities.
