These events will begin Anna’s year-long collaborative residency at the Weisman Art Museum and the School of Nursing’s Center for Aging Science and Care Innovation, where Anna and her collaborator Kristine Talley, PhD, RN will explore the use of dance as a means of enhancing the culture of empathy and sustainability in senior assisted living communities.
