Good mental health is often enhanced by aspects of spirituality, defined as connecting with something larger than oneself. This type of connection can often be experienced through nature and the arts.
This UAB event is brought to you by AIM (Institute for the Arts in Medicine) which encourages healing through the arts. Since 2013, this program has been bringing healing creative services by professional artists in residence who are trained to deliver creative exhibits, performances, and lectures to patients and healthcare providers.
UAB’s AIM program brings participants the proven benefits of utilizing the arts to enhance mood, improve stress levels, provide greater pain tolerance, and ultimately, boost recovery rates. This program is not limited to patients only. Families and caregivers are also encouraged to take part in AIM’s services.
Be sure and register for this FREE virtual event HERE in order to receive the Zoom link prior to the starting time via email. The event will start at 12:00 PM.
