APB Speaker Regina Holliday Featured in 'Wall Street Journal' for Innovative Approach to Medical Advocacy
16 Mar 2016
APB speaker Regina Holliday was recently featured in The Wall Street Journal for the painted jackets she has created to help share the medical narratives of those who wear them. These jackets, part of her Walking Gallery movement, are painted by either Holliday or one of 42 artists to depict the story of a medical patient or an element of medical advocacy.
In The Wall Street Journal’s article, Holliday says she considers all of the 353 different paintings a “walking gallery.” The drive of the project is that patients should sit at the center of healthcare, with medical authorities engaging them as equal partners. The article highlights the jackets of medical professionals, breast cancer survivors, those with debilitating conditions, and more.
One of today's most vocal patient rights activists, Holliday travels the globe heralding her message of patient empowerment. She fearlessly stands before officials and practitioners, demanding a thoughtful dialog on the role patients play in their own healthcare.
