The arts and health - interwoven!

Health is but once aspect of well-being. The arts are an integral part of sense of well-being. 

Our supporters Brave New Eco are raising funds to purchase two tapestries from Karen artists. These tapestries will hang in our waiting room.

Please see BNE's blog and crowd-funding page and consider donating to this group of traditional weavers.
