Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America’s 2017 Art is Ageless® Calendar received a Bronze Award from the National Health Information Awards Program.
Art is Ageless began in 1981 when resident art was featured in a calendar. Knowing how a creative outlet can benefit the mind, body and spirit is just one reason that in 2006 PMMA opened its Art is Ageless competition to all seniors in the area.
Art is Ageless is a trademarked program of Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America, a faith-based not-for-profit organization with 17 retirement communities and 2 hospices in Kansas and Missouri. Each community holds a juried art competition exclusively for people age 65 and older.
Winning art at the campus level may be chosen to appear in a calendar or note cards in a system-wide judging. Periodic programs and classes are held throughout the year to encourage seniors to express their creativity. Learn more about the program at ArtIsAgeless.org.
The National Health Information awards program is coordinated by the Health Information Resource Center, a national clearinghouse for consumer health information programs and materials.
