Cinderblocks 3: Agenda

(This page is always improving with new information as I have it.  So please check back for updates!)

Cinderblocks 3: The Partnership with Patients Continues is an art and medical conference that will be held in Grantsville, MD at Penn Alps Resturant and Little Crossings by The Cornucopia Café May 19-21, 2016.   I founded this event with the help of several other epatients and I am happy to see it enter its third year. I am known in healthcare circles as the artist that founded the international patient right’s movement called The Walking Gallery.  I and 43 other artists paint patients stories on the backs of jackets that people wear to medical conferences.  I see Cinderblocks 3 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.
