Empowering Health Care Engagement

Every jacket tells a story

June 15, 2011 By: ekivemark Category: News

HealthCamp Foundation happily participated in Regina Holliday’s The Walking Gallery on Tuesday, June 7, 2011.  This is an amazing project where each coat is “painted with the story of a patient or an element of health advocacy by me (Regina Holliday) or another artist.”

Here are all of the night’s walkers lined-up in front of the Walking Wall at the Kaiser Permanente Center for Total Health, showing their jackets. It was a powerful part of DC Health Innovation Week which included HealthCampDC.  All of the jackets are amazing: Welcome to the Walking Gallery.
Mark’s coat is Half Past Midnight and includes part of the HealthCamp logo – the fireball & heart. There is also the “blue button”, “green button”, and “white button”, part of the Rainbow Button Initiative.
My coat, “Nurse Power”, also includes the HealthCamp fireball & heart but shows two nurses getting ready to kick some butt and that “butt” is the green creature in the corner – the AIDS virus!  I Love everything that my jacket depicts.
This is just the start of the Walking Gallery but there will be more starting with The Walker’s Oath.

Thanks to Ted Eytan for providing a copy of the Proclamation.
