A Letter from President Megan Matthews
In these letters I’ve talked about arts and the economy, arts and education, and now I would like to talk a bit about arts and healing.

Research proves that including the arts in healthcare can enhance coping, reduce patients’ need for hospital care and pain medication, reduce depression and anxiety, and contribute to patient satisfaction…
"The visual and performing arts are key parts of any vibrant community but they require a mix of arts professionals and dedicated volunteers to nurture and maintain them. The Whitewater Arts Alliance sponsors and helps to coordinate some of these efforts and it has been my great pleasure to serve in a small way to further the arts in the Whitewater area."
