The online Museum prescription
Resources to enjoy the health benefits of art
Museum Prescription Program was launched in 2018 in partnership with Médecins francophones du Canada. It allows physicians to prescribe a visit to the Museum for their patients so they can enjoy the health benefits of art.
In its new online version, the program offers a range of digital cultural content produced by the MMFA to promote wellness through art.
