Cinderblocks 4: The Walking Gallery Gathers is an art and medical conference that will be held in Grantsville, MD at Penn Alps Restaurant and at Little Crossings by The Cornucopia Café May 18-20, 2017. I founded this event with the help of several other epatients and I am happy to see it enter its fourth year. I am known in healthcare circles as the artist that founded The Walking Gallery. I and 46 other artists paint patients stories on the backs of jackets that people wear to medical conferences. I see #Cinderblocks4 a continuation of the message of The Walking Gallery and as venue that prizes the patient and provider in equal measure. We will use our days at this conference to focus on improving health care everywhere.
