Elder Care: Building Empathy Through Art

Thursday, August 15, 2019 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM

Health Sciences Education Building, C403 435 N. 5th St. Phoenix, AZ 85004 United States

Join us for an art workshop entitled "Building Empathy Through Art" with a focus on elder care. There are many benefits to working with older adults. Not only is it an important job for our society, caring for our elders can be extremely rewarding and fulfilling, too. In this workshop, you will learn how you can enhance the quality of life of elders and people living with Alzheimer's disease and related dementia, while creating a beautiful 12" by 12" piece of art. 

This workshop will be facilitated by Grace Haynes, MD, whose art work is currently on display on the Health Sciences Education Building's 5th floor. 

All supplies will be provided. Please bring a picture of an elderly person you know.
