Join us on Thu Mar 24, 6 pm at The Well for a therapeutic online workshop with Melanie
Almeder, writer and educator, and Elia Khalaf, psychotherapist, and artist.
In this session, we'll think about the ways we journey, and what we carry to arrive. The Well is a complimentary program using poetry and art to improve wellness within a non-judgmental, brave space. Open to all patients, survivors, and healthcare staff.
