Additional Information: Last spring, UF Health Shands Arts in Medicine received a grant from the LIVESTRONG Foundation. This program was awarded funding to participate in The Creative Center at University Settlement Outpatient Arts Program.
The Arts in Medicine program will use the funding to launch Creative For Health Studio, free weekly arts and writing workshops for people affected by cancer, including patients, survivors, and caregivers.
The workshops will be led by artist in residence, Dylan Klempner, who will collaborate each week with artists and writers from across the Gainesville community and beyond. Over the course of the program, participants will paint, sculpt, write, dance, and sing in a fun and supportive environment.
