Groundswell collaborated with Horizons Juvenile Detention Center and Montefiore Medical Center to develop a series of murals depicting the importance of community health, proper eating habits, and physical activity. Horizons youth conducted research on healthy living while honing their artistic skills. They engaged in discussions about good nutrition, eating healthy, and staying active. Based on their research and experiences, they developed images to communicate the purpose and value of healthy living, and to educateothers on how to do so. The pieces were split between the clinic at Horizons Juvenile Detention Center and Horizon Montefiore Medical Center.
