Unites providers and community

The Robe to Wellness Project establishes Sewing Circles Support Groups at local cancer centers. This unites providers and the community in their efforts to give the post-hospital support crucial to well-being.

Evidence-based research suggests that natural scenes aid in healing. Roger Ulrich, ‘A View from a Window’, Science Magazine, 1984. This landmark study documented the physiological effects of people’s experience of nature, measuring blood pressure, heart rate, temperature, etc. It provided scientifically sound evidence that patient’s with views of nature used less narcotic and milder analgesics, indicating lower pain experience. Such patients also stayed in hospitals for a shorter time period and had a more positive surgical recovery overall than patients whose views included no natural elements.
