Happy Hour -- featuring The Walking Gallery
Tuesday | September 21, 2021
So many conferences have a similar look about them when photographed. We usually meet in ballrooms; nicely dressed men and women stand behind podiums. Most people show lovely smiles to the cameras, regardless of whether or not their slide deck was filled with horrific statistics or pleasing results. Good or bad, the paintbrush can depict content in a different way. A painting can capture in one quick glance thoughts and feeling that may take an author pages to describe. The Patient Experience Symposium is honored to have Artist Regina Holliday joining us in the back of the room, painting during the conference sessions. During this Happy Hour, we are proud to be inviting the members of the Walking Gallery to join us.
This is the ninth year of the Walking Gallery of Healthcare. Now with over 460 members walking around the world with patient story paintings on their backs. They attend medical conferences where often there isn’t a patient speaker on the agenda or in the audience. They are providing a patient voice, and by doing so, are changing the conversation. The Gallery has representatives on six continents, but the majority of Walkers reside in the US. Its widening appeal within the health conference community is creating a new space for patients at such events.
