Spring Artist Mart Kicks Off National Hospital and National Nurses Weeks
April 30, 2013
Fun and shopping can be found at the Spring Artist Mart at DeKalb Medical this week. Beginning Thursday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Community Room on its Hillandale campus, DeKalb Medical will host this open-to-the-community-event as a kickoff to its National Hospital and Nurses Week 2013 celebration.
The Spring Artist Mart features hand-made crafts and jewelry, pottery, paintings, photography, home décor, dolls, greeting cards, gourmet items, children’s books, skin care products, and accessories for purchase. Many of these products will make great Mother’s Day gifts. The Wellness Center at DeKalb Medical will also have employees on-site to discuss membership benefits.
On Friday, the Spring Artist Mart will move to the Bobbie Bailey Tower Auditorium at DeKalb Medical’s North Decatur campus from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Also, DeKalb Medical Long Term Acute Care in downtown Decatur will host the mart from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. in its administrative conference room.
The purpose of the Spring Artist Mart is to celebrate the upcoming National Hospital and Nurses Week by fostering a sense of community between DeKalb Medical and its surrounding neighborhoods. Parking is available at all campuses.
National Hospital and Nurses Week is May 6 through May 13. DeKalb Medical will celebrate with several internal events.
