The Mountain Air: The Beginning of a Healthy Colorado.

April 9-August 20
FREE Opening Artist Reception: 10 a.m.-4 p.m., Saturday, April 16
Radius Gallery, Lakewood Heritage Center

 Colorado is currently one of the top ten healthiest states in America. But how did the state start its involvement with the mind, body and spirit of residents and visitors? Clear mountain air and sunshine first lured tuberculosis patients to Colorado for treatment one hundred years ago, including to Lakewood's Jewish Consumptive Relief Society. Immerse yourself in the compelling photographs and rapidly changing medical practices of local pharmacies and doctor offices, St. Anthony Hospital and the Hospice at St.John- the first inpatient hospice program west of the Mississippi. As an advertisement to tuberculosis patients instructed: "Come west and get life!"
