It’s no surprise to readers of this blog that art has a positive benefit on one’s well being. Whether it’s a piece that uplifts your soul or challenges your mind, art is more than just decoration on the wall. Family Health Centers of San Diego (FHCSD) has taken that belief to a new level with its “Arts for Healing” program in which it brings art into its clinic sites for the benefit of its patients.
According to Dr. Chad Newell, a pediatrician, the program works wonders for his patients. “We are all just so thankful to have this artwork for our clinic and for our kids! The artwork brightens up the rooms and puts a smile on our patient’s little faces, even when they’re not feeling so great.”
That’s why we, here at Oopsy daisy, are so happy to be able to help out to do so!
Arts for Healing is a program of FHCSD, a private, non-profit community health center which provides caring, affordable, high quality health care to everyone, with a special commitment to people who are low income, uninsured and under served. For FHCSD, high quality care includes providing care in a welcoming environment that helps put patients at ease.
As we are strong supporters of this program, we have helped FHCSD acquire hundreds of pieces of art, and encourage all our faithful followers, supporters and customers to do the same. If you are interested in supporting this wonderful program, please contact Amber Zent at (619) 515-2306 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
