Florida: Arts in Healthcare for Rural Communities Toolkit

AIM for the Panhandle is a multiyear project of Shands Arts in Medicine program, supported by Florida Division of Cultural Affairs (FDCA), the National Endowment for the Arts and the University of Florida Center for the Arts in Healthcare. The project is designed to create a working model for arts in health care programs in rural Florida communities. To illustrate this model, the Arts in Healthcare for Rural Communities Toolkit was designed to provide resources for the development of arts in health care programs and projects that address health disparities and support individual and community health in rural communities. The project is in its second year and will be featured as the rural arts in health care model at the Society for Arts in Healthcare 21st Annual International Conference.
