2-3pm EST: Webinar Addressing Chronic Disease through Cross-Sector Collaboration

        • The national Creating Healthy Communities: Arts + Public Health in America initiative has recently released a white paper that presents a case for why cross-sector collaboration is critically needed to address the complex issues that limit health in the US. This white paper frames the value of arts and culture for advancing health and well-being in communities and offers examples of impactful cross-sector collaborations that engage arts and culture to address five critical public health issues – collective trauma, racism, social isolation and exclusion, mental health and chronic disease.
        • In this sixth webinar in a series hosted by the University of Florida Center for Arts in Medicine, the focus is on how to address chronic disease.
