Lakeland, FL — The Watson Clinic Foundation’s Arts in Medicine program will observe National Cancer Survivors Week with a series of creative and inspiring activities designed to celebrate the spirit of cancer survivorship in our community. Attendees will enjoy snacks, free giveaways, participation in group art projects and live music between the hours of 10 am and 3 pm the week of June 4 –7. These festivities are open to the public, including patients, family members and caregivers who have experienced the struggles of cancer firsthand.
Arts in Medicine is an empowering outreach initiative that elevates the spirits and quality of life for cancer patients and their caregivers through the practice of the creative arts. Housed in the Watson Clinic Cancer & Research Center at 1730 Lakeland Hills Blvd. in Lakeland, the program is made possible by a dedicated group of volunteers comprised of musicians, crafters, artists, performers and educators; all joining together to represent nearly all forms of creative expression. By taking part in these creative activities, patients and their family members experience an improved sense of self-esteem, focus, relaxation and engagement with others, which can ultimately have a positive impact on their medical outcomes as well.
