Patient Rights Activist Regina Holliday Showcases Her Medical Advocacy Mural Project
15 Jan 2019
Advocate, artist and APB speaker Regina Holliday started a medical advocacy blog after her husband passed away from poor care and a lack of access to his own medical data. Holliday created this forum to be “a place where art, medicine, social media and pop-culture collide and create a patient voice in health information technology.” Since 2009, she has used her art to give a platform to those demanding healthcare policies for better quality patient treatment and safety. As an experienced painter, Holliday attends medical conferences and live paints stories on canvases as told by fellow advocates and patients. Over time, she developed and created The Medical Advocacy Mural Project.
In addition to her artwork, Holliday also travels the globe heralding her message of patient empowerment and inclusion in healthcare decision-making. Demanding a thoughtful dialog on the role patients play in their own healthcare, she passionately discusses the benefits of health information technology and timely data access for patients.
