Art Rx – Satur­day, Nov. 11, 11 a.m.; Free for Ev­ery­one

Art Rx now serves two com­mu­ni­ties – those with chronic pain and those who serve as pal­lia­tive care­givers for pa­tients or loved ones fac­ing the end of life. These in­di­vid­u­als along with their guests are in­vited to en­joy fa­cil­i­tated group con­ver­sa­tions about se­lect pieces of art with an ac­com­plished do­cent. The goal of Art Rx is to en­cour­age pos­i­tive ex­pe­ri­ences that re­duce the bur­den of chronic pain and care­giver stress. No prior art knowl­edge is nec­es­sary. Ad­vanced regis­tra­tion is re­quired. Call (916) 808-1962, or email ed­u­ca­tion@crock­er­art.org with ques­tions. First­time par­tic­i­pants: Please ar­rive 15 to 30 min­utes early for check-in. Art Rx is pre­sented in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Cen­ter for Pain Medicine’s In­te­gra­tive Pain Man­age­ment Pro­gram, part of the UC Davis Health Sys­tem.
