The depiction of medical conditions in art has enhanced our understanding of the evolution of disease and its treatment, but exact diagnosis of the underlying medical Conditions can be difficult.
Having been a journalist I have this habit of trying to chase CAUSES… things that do not exist or are dying …..
so for a long time I stuck to talking about the need for awareness of brain death diagnosis and the organ gift Act, then chased epidemiology or its lack…..
Medical errors, the nexus between Pharma companies and doctors….
Now, older and wiser when I settled down to Art, I found my real cause: the preservation of our medical heritage and its artistic visualization. Both in very poor health.
