Seeing Beyond Diagnosis

Rick Guidotti, an award winning photographer, has spent the past twenty years collaborating internationally with non profit organizations, hospitals, medical schools, educational institutions, advocacy groups and communities to promote a more inclusive and compassionate world where ALL differences are understood and celebrated. Guidotti’s work has been published in newspapers, magazines, and journals as diverse as Elle, GQ, People, the American Journal of Medical Genetics, The Lancet, Spirituality and Health, the Washington Post, New York Times, Atlantic Monthly and LIFE Magazine. Rick is the founder and director of POSTIVE EXPOSURE, an innovative arts, advocacy, and education organization which utilizes the visual arts to celebrate human diversity, inclusive of ethnicity, religion, age, ability, learning style, gender identity, gender expression and sexual orientation. POSTIVE EXPOSURE has significantly

impacted the field of human rights, mental health, medicine, and education by providing new opportunities to see each individual as a human being and valued member of our society.

Objectives

  • Describe the social and psychological experiences of people of all ages and ethno cultural heritages living with genetic, physical, behavioral and cognitive conditions.
  • Discuss ways to best meet the needs of children and families with, or at risk for a genetic disorder.
  • Explore opportunities to see each individual living with a genetic difference first and foremost as a human being with his/her own special needs, rather than as a specific diagnosis/disease entity.

POSITIVE EXPOSURE Elective:

Positive Exposure (PE) and its film program, FRAME (Faces Redefining the Art of Medical Education) weaves critical medical information, with personal and lived experiences, for healthcare professionals in training, clinicians, families and communities. Each film, 8-12 minutes in length, provides a greater understanding of the most commonly seen diagnoses by demonstrating hallmark characteristics of a particular condition, while modeling an attitude of respect for the humanity of the patients.  

 This elective will provide students with the opportunity to participate in the creation of a Positive Exposure FRAME (Faces Redefining the Art of Medical Education) film. In Phase 1, Students will explore partnerships with specialists and advocacy organizations, the research process, prompt development and interview techniques. In Phase 2, students will participate in a virtual forum that will enable students to ask questions of specialists and an advocacy group, as well as interview individuals and families living with a particular genetic condition. In Phase 3, students will examine transcripts and a rough film edit of virtual interviews, and discuss the pertinent details to be included in the final film.

Have you ever wanted to explore hand stitching and felt nervous picking up that needle? Did you ever wonder if you could explore stitching in a non-traditional way? This is an introductory workshop on hand sewing in which we will just learn one or two stitches and explore the endless possibilities they can offer.  Working with needles and threads can seem hard or out of reach but together we can make it easy and within reach.

Join me for this workshop to explore non-traditional ways of exploring stitching to create something interesting or simply engage with your hands and connect with our beautiful and rich community.
