Arts in Medicine at Sacred HeartAll local artists are encouraged to learn more about the Arts in Medicine program at Sacred Heart Hospital on the Emerald Coast. Put your artistic talents to use in new and innovative ways. To learn more about the program and opportunities for involvement please contact Sharon Abele at 278-3081 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Arts in Medicine is an emerging field within health care that addresses what many have long known and medical research is now proving – that music, writing, dance, storytelling and other art activities can play an important role in healing not just the body, but the mind and spirit of an individual.
The overall goal of Arts in Medicine is to integrate performing, meditative and visual arts into a wide variety of settings to promote community wellness. Through the program, Sacred Heart will bring artists, artwork and performers into the hospital to provide activities at the bedside and in outpatient clinical areas and waiting rooms. Participating artists will receive a small honorarium and free meal in the Sacred Heart café.
