Complimentary Interventions, a nursing class taught by Dana Krause, is based on research showing that when a patient with chronic pain or disease concentrates and learns from a positive activity, their brain will temporarily redirect the pain pathway and concentrate on the new task, thus relieving the pain a bit. This can be practiced and perfected so that the pain may actually diminish over time or be controlled. Students in the class assume the patient role and complete two 16 x 20 scripture based acrylic paintings. The unsigned pictures are then donated to health care facilities throughout the region. To date about 600-700 have been donated. This exhibit was available on the library's first floor January 8 through March 29, 2018.
