ArtistAccess Health Program in NYC


Over the past six months, a consortium of artist service organizations and unions - including NYFA, Dance/NYC, and Dance Theatre Workshop — and Brooklyn's Woodhull Medical Center, have developed an artist-specific healthcare initiative based at Woodhull as a pilot project. Currently hosted by Woodhull, ArtistAccess may eventually be offered by many of NYC's public hospitals. The program offers affordable healthcare for all NYC-based artists and arts workers, and offers the unique option of artists exchanging creative services for medical care. Woodhull Medical Center is committed to bringing quality healthcare to all patients, regardless of income or immigration status.

There will be a town hall meeting on the Program on Monday, June 20th, 5:30 - 6:30 at Dance Theatre Workshop's Bessie Schönberg Theater, 219 West 19th Street, (between 7th & 8th Avenues).
