In the US, a major review of arts and health found that half of American heath care institutions now have arts programming, and 60% use their operating budgets to fund such programs. The review also found that the programs resulted in shorter hospital stays, reduced need for medications, and improved workplace satisfaction and employee retention. ~ Arts Health Network Canada #ArtsVoteAbby
