Kaiser seeking healthy lifestyle inspiration



Kaiser Permanente is inviting anyone who lives in its Oregon or Southwest Washington service area to share what inspires them to adopt healthier lifestyles.

Entries should include a digital photo of something illustrating that inspiration. The most inspiring entries will be sent to Oregon painters who will transform the photos into dozens of art panels. The panels will form a large wall mosaic inside the new Kaiser Permanente Westside Medical Center.

The 126-bed hospital and specialty medical clinic, located in the Tanasbourne area of Hillsboro, Ore., will open in August 2013.

To participate, send a photo of your inspiration along with a written essay (300 words or fewer) or a video (three minutes or shorter) explaining how you’ve been inspired to get or stay healthy.

The deadline is Dec. 14. For submission details, visit northwest-hospitals.kaiserpermanente.org/inspiration-art-project.
