MEMBER RESOURCES:  RESEARCH FORUMS

Hello members! At the 2021 NOAH conference in October, our members asked for a platform to connect with other arts in health researchers, develop research skills, and gain access to research tools and findings. The Research Forums take place quarterly on 2nd Thursdays. Register on our calendar!

Dr. Shreeniwas and team members will present work-in-progress on their study of how Social Prescribing for the Arts programs influences access to older adults’ access to arts participation, and mechanisms by which these programs are financed, and delivered. Their qualitative study begins by interviewing people with SPA experience in countries where such programs already exist, e.g. Canada, UK, and Scandinavian countries. In the next phase, they will interview their counterparts in the US. Their broader goal is to identify ways in which SPA programs can be enfolded into the US healthcare system for older adults.
