Medicine X artist-in-residence Regina Holliday speaks about patient advocacy

Yesterday afternoon at the Medicine X conference here, artist-in-residence Regina Holliday captivated attendees with her heartfelt and empowering presentation on patient engagement.

A widow and mother of two, Holliday speaks nationally about patient rights and challenges the health-care system through a range of art projects. One of her artistic efforts is her walking gallery, a collection of more than 107 jackets that capture the causes of the patients who wear them. A number of Medicine X attendees have worn their jackets this weekend.

In the video above, Holliday discusses her work and passionately calls for people to join the ePatient community and use their voices to collaborate with providers, pursue new health systems, and develop patient-centered design solutions.
