Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women. To prevent heart disease and increase awareness of its effects, Partners in Health is proudly participating in American Heart Health Month.
Please join us for our upcoming Art for the Heart event on February 13th at 5:30-7:30 pm. Click here to RSVP.
It has actually been proven that art lowers cortisol (the “stress hormone”) in short time spans of painting.
A local guest artist, Beth Rinke, will be present during this event showcasing her art. To learn more about the artist and her work, check out her website!
Our office will be providing canvases, paint, and brushes to guide you through the painting of your personal canvas. Participants will be able to leave with the piece of art they created. ♥
