Last summer I had the pleasure of photographing Patricia Weltin, CEO and Founder of Beyond the Diagnosis. In the spirit of promoting others who are making the world a better place to live, please check out the wondrous work that Patricia is doing!
“Beyond the Diagnosis” is a traveling art exhibition of beautiful portraits. There are over 100 portraits in the collection by amazing artists from around the world.
"The Beyond the Diagnosis art exhibit's focus is the orphan disease patient. Artists have donated their time and talents to paint orphan disease patients for this groundbreaking exhibit. Each portrait represents a single orphan disease. Our goal is to put a face to all 7,000 orphan diseases. This beautiful exhibit is traveling to medical schools, research institutes and hospitals around the globe encouraging the medical community to look “beyond the diagnosis” to the patient.
Art has been used for thousands of years to successfully convey a message, whether it be a story or a glimpse into the human spirit. At Beyond the Diagnosis, we believe art not only leaves a powerful and lasting visual imprint but creates a unique connection for the viewer."
