Arts in Medicine holds classes for Ambassador families

This fall, our UF Health Shands Arts In Medicine team offered two 6-week virtual art workshop series for our CMN Ambassador families! These workshops provided Ambassadors and their siblings the opportunity to create artwork alongside other virtual classmates under the direction of UF Health artists-in-residence.

This initiative was an exciting opportunity for our families who are unable to attend in-person school or extracurricular activities due to the precautions involved with COVID-19. CMN Hospitals funding helped provide all the supplies for this opportunity for kids to express themselves through art during a very tumultuous time!
