Abigail Cain describes the history of the arts and wellness movement over the past 20 years, with references to Gene Cohen’s groundbreaking research and work being done on both coasts.

“So much of our world tells older people they can’t.  And it’s not just in the arts…there’s so much ageism and isolation that when you walk into a space that says, ‘Yes, you can—and we’re going to show you how,’ it’s a breath of fresh air.”
