Stanford nurse's whiteboard artistry brings cheer to patients, co-workers

For Stanford nurse Alicia Moreci, RN, the whiteboard has become more than just a place to write information about her patients. It's also a blank canvas where she displays her now famous drawings in theĀ hospital's cardiac-monitoring unit. A segment on NBC Bay Area featured her drawings and Moreci explaining how her role as artist-in-residence in the cardiac-monitoring unit at Stanford Hospital & Clinics all began with a small drawing of the Loch Ness Monster.

Moreci creates a new drawing every week and, as reported in a pastĀ Inside Stanford Medicine story, her artwork has become so popular that other units have requested she decorate their whiteboards. She told my colleague, "My unit has been joking that it's going to hire me out and use the proceeds to fund a party."
