Antwerp HeArts (Healthcare for Artists) is the multidisciplinary centre of expertise for the prevention and treatment of artists’ diseases. It was founded by the Antwerp University Hospital (UZA) and the University of Antwerp’s Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences.
Antwerp HeArts works for both professional and amateur artists.
Its three goals and main activities are to:
- Provide optimized health care to artists with a disease
- Contribute to the prevention of artists' diseases
- Increase the knowledge and insights in this field through scientific research (read the abstracts in English) and training or education (view the presentations, some in Dutch, some in English)
