Rawlins Clinic seeks Local Photographers Photos

 

Rawlins Clinic – Atwood would like to feature local Rawlins County artists with pictures displayed throughout the clinic and front lobby areas. “There have been some recent studies showing the benefits of lower stress and reduced anxiety while waiting in an environment that featured artwork or other visual stimulus. Some items such as plants and aquariums present infection potential in a hospital setting. A good alternative to this is landscape or architecture-themed pictures. That is what we are going for with the photo contest; we hope to enhance our current waiting room and exam rooms to make patients experience more relaxing and enjoyable” said Jason Kearns, PA-C.  Jenn Hurst, Clinic Operations Director stated, “The staff in the clinic are very excited about the photo contest.  We have been wanting to do something in the clinic rooms since the remodel but were never sure what to do.  Jason came up with this idea and we love it!  The fact that there is research out there showing that this can benefit our patients is a bonus!  We truly live in a beautiful place and I am looking forward to seeing the pictures people submit.”

A photo contest will be conducted, with community members getting the opportunity to vote on their favorite submitted photos. Photos can be of anything in the Rawlins County area, including scenery, events, buildings, etc. Pictures that were entered in the fair are also eligible. Some pictures will be a 20×30 acrylic print, so high-resolution print-quality will be desired.  Photographers are asked to submit pictures of actual or original size to sdozbaba@rchc.us by September 14th. Once photos are submitted, Rawlins County Health Center staff will vote on their top choices. The community will then be invited to help pick the top winners to get printed in October. If you have any questions regarding the photo contest, please contact Suzanna Koel at 785-626-3211 ext. 220 (sdozbaba@rchc.us) or Jennifer Hurst at 785-626-3211 ext. 310 (jhurst@rchc.us).
