Culture Rx Prescribes the Arts


Did you know that 80–90% of health outcomes are determined by health-related behaviors, socioeconomic factors, and environmental factors? CultureRx, a pilot program funded by Mass Cultural Council, has published a unique study that attempts to address this issue in the U.S. through “social prescribing,” or referrals to community-based services. CultureRx is the first “arts on prescription” program available in the U.S., linking healthcare providers with cultural organizations in Massachusetts that offer free experiences to referred patients and clients. A recommended read for anyone who works at the intersection of arts and health!
