About Flash Art Show

Mission: The mission of the City of Paterson and the Paterson Department Health and Human Services Flash Online Art Show is to encourage students to think creatively about health and what it means to their community.   The City of Paterson, Paterson DHHS, in partnership with the Public Good Projects, hopes to use the art submissions as inspiration for a social marketing campaign in Paterson to encourage others to decrease their consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages, sugar being shown to be the leading cause of diabetes and obesity in the community.
