Research

The focus of The Al & Malka Green Artists’ Health Centre is on understanding the unique health problems of artists, the risk factors involved in artistic practice and on investigating methods of prevention. Through evidence-based research, we hope to discover some of the causes of artists’ occupational illnesses and injuries, and study the clinical benefits of combining therapies in the most effective way possible.
