Ginette Hamel, physiotherapist, and the writer, working in the AHC movement assessment studio with a video camera HEALTH Focus, coNT1Nu rn ment insurance, no disability insurance, no sick days), the stress of low and unpredictable incomes, and through it all, the internal demand of wanting to create and perform a,t our best. This working group, which ultimately became the Steering Committee of the Artists' Health Centre Foundation, met regularly for the next eight years, doing research into existing artists' clinics in the United States and Europe (we discovered that our ~oncept was uniqu\!), conducting a survey of artists in Toronto to ·determine where the greatest need was, creating a design for our "ideal clinic", and trying to find a way to make our health centre a reality. We had much help along the way from an energetic and committed group of business, medical, and arts professionals. In November, 2002, the Al and Malka Green Artists' 'Health Centre (AHC) opened within the Healthy Connections Program at the Toronto Western Hospital, University Health Network, and ·our dreams and vision became a reality! Although the clinic was closed for many weeks in the spring of 2003, due to SARS, the key elements of what we imagined are now in place, and with continuing input from artists, we know that we are close to our goal of providing a unique and groundbreaking model of health care delivery, offering an integrated, inter-disciplinary approach to health care for professional performing and creative artists. For us, a priority has always been the integration of conventional and alternative/complementary therapies. The centre currently has a primary care nurse practitioner, social worker, pharmacist, physiotherapist, and three registered massage therapists. Over the next year, we will add psychotherapy, chiropractic, and naturopathic services to the clinic, and we are developing a comprehensive referral list for those therapies that are not offered on site. The practitioners hired for the AHC have extensive experience with artists' issues and unique working conditions, and they work together as a team to provide the best and most efficient care. We have other priorities as well. Because artists frequently live at or below the poverty line, we have been raising funds to , establish a subsidy program, which will help those in financial need access th'e services that will help them continue to work as artists. Beginning in January, 2004, artist clients of the , AHC can apply for subsidy towards necessary therapies offered at the clinic. Part of the mandate of the AHC and the affiliated Artists' Health Centre Foundation is education and outreach to artists in the community, about ways to increase their level of well being, and how to prevent or deal with some of the more common injuries 'and health issues. To date, we have presented five seminars on artists' health issues, and this will be an ongoing part of our program, not just in the clin- Need a musician?
