Description

Regina Holliday is the founder of the Walking Gallery and is the author of Regina Holliday’s Medical Advocacy Blog. She will conduct a 90-minute Master Class on social media for action. The final curriculum will be shaped by the learners themselves through their course applications, but his master class tentatively includes:

  • The power of art when it meets advocacy.
  • How do you use limited resources and social media tools to take action and create a lasting impact.
  • When an unconference isn’t enough: using disruptive social media tactics to create change.

 

Regina Holliday is a DC-based patient rights arts advocate. Regina began painting a series of murals depicting the need for clarity and transparency in medical records. This advocacy mission was inspired by her husband Frederick Allen Holliday II and his struggle to get appropriate care during 11 weeks of continuous hospitalization at 5 facilities. After his death resulting from kidney cancer on June 17, 2009, she began painting a mural entitled “73 cents.” It depicts the Holliday family’s journey through the medical system. This painting became part of the national healthcare debate and was covered by news sources such as ABC, CBS, BBC and peer reviewed journal such as the BMJ. Regina will be the 2012 Medicine X artist-in-residence. She will be painting throughout the conference, documenting the events that occur both on stage and off.
