Workshop on Research Gaps and Opportunities for Exploring the Relationship between the Arts and Health and Well-Being in Older Adults

On Friday, September 14, 2012, the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and the National Academy of Sciences co-host a public workshop that will explore the benefit of the arts to the health and well-being of older adults. The workshop is expected to help inform the NEA and the NIH of potential opportunities for research in this area. The gathering will feature leading neuroscientists, psychologists, and researchers and practitioners in health and the arts, who will present findings from research on the arts and aging, in an effort to pinpoint gaps for future studies.
