IT’S A W.I.N. (Art and Wellness in Nature) is a comprehensive program designed to reduce obesity, prevent cardiovascular disease, and improve mental health through physical activity and engagement in the arts.

By having multiple touch points and creating bridges to other organizations supporting wellness initiatives, the IT’S A W.I.N. program is designed to help change behavior resulting in more time spent engaging in the creative arts and in spending time outdoors.

IT’S A W.I.N. programming is customized for each partner organization, taking into account the needs of the clientele, health and wellbeing goals, budget, and other parameters.
