Throughout the summer, you can find my original pencil drawings and limited edition prints on display at the Health Education Building of the North Canton Medical Foundation. The North Canton Medical Foundation is one of the largest independent public healthcare foundations in Ohio, and the only one in the nation with a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) designation. Founded by Dr. Ralph Warburton, the facility has been open since 1972.
Located in North Canton, Ohio, the Foundation encompasses two buildings which include a Medical Center and A Health Education Center. Satellite offices which provide internal medicine and/or specialized healthcare services are located in Bolivar, Canton South, North Canton and Massillon.
Though a wide range of medical services are offered, the Foundation is more than just a high tech medical facility. Through their success and the continued support of faithful contributors, they are able to offer programs which benefit patients. Surplus revenue is reinvested into funds to assist those in need and to provide education programs that enhance the quality of life in the community. These programs include, but are not limited to: Charitable Medical Clinics, Prescription Assistance Program, Health Education Library, Community Education Programs, Health Fairs and Clinics and Physician Training.
The Health Education Center building, where my work is on display, is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 am until 6:00 pm, and Saturday from 8:00-1:00. Artwork will be on display through September. All framed works are for sale, and brochures are available.
