    UIC Cancer Clinic – Expressive Arts

    Second Wednesdays –  beginning January 9, 10:00 – 11:30 a.m.

    UIC Cancer Clinic Infusion Center
    Facilitator:  Caring Arts, Elen

    Research has shown that participation in the arts contributes to higher quality of life for cancer patients by improving coping resources, self-esteem, and mental and physical health. It is our hope that the support we offer through the escape of the arts enriches the daily lives of patients and their families, providing joy, stress release, and a reprieve from treatment.
