Our country is on the verge of a significant demographic shift that will see a large increase in the number of older Americans. The potential implications for the health care system, as well as the elderly and their families, will be enormous, requiring that we consider innovative approaches to treating, managing, and preventing disease. A promising and innovative area that has already shown considerable potential and some success is strengthening the links between creativity, health, and aging. Research continues to find many positive health benefits for those who actively participate in creative arts programs, both from a prevention perspective and for those afflicted with disorders and diseases that occur more frequently as we age. Join us on this webinar to discuss and learn about how these programs positively influence health outcomes, how funders are investing in programs, and the opportunities for health funders to collaborate and support this important field of work.
