In the beginning of June we partnered with CHNET-Works! at the University of Ottawa to host a free webinar called, â€œWhat Does Art Have to do with Healthâ€. The webinar raised questions about the intersection of Arts and Health and provoked insightful discussions. To download a copy of the presentation, visit item #395 on the CHNET-Works! website. An audio recording of the webinar will be posted soon!
