Once a week, a waiting room on the 5th floor at UF Health Shands Hospital is transformed into a social gathering place for patients and families. Adult patients waiting for heart transplantation engage in arts and craft activities, musical performances, and special occasion meals. The activities are designed to build a sense of community through the arts among families experiencing similar challenges, and foster support for one another.
