Art for Health
This year’s Art for Health event was a great success; it supports the work of the Office of Rush Global Health and Community Empowerment in Haiti and the Dominican Republic. The theme of Rising speaks to the spirit within our partner communities, the strength and determination the community leaders, doctors and patients have employed amidst a global health crisis, riots and a presidential assassination. They have persisted in their communal work, in creating a better and healthier future. This year, we celebrated these achievements and more.
If you’d still like to make Donations, they are greatly appreciated.
