Watch for our upcoming article in The Muse magazine, a medical humanities initiative that aims to address key healthcare issues through interdisciplinary dialogue.
In this upcoming article we talk about the campaign #4Eva and how Eva and Cyrus McEachern collaborated to submit the now famous photos of Eva and the heart she painted on her body. Their inspiration was a contest founded by Dr. Carol Ann Courneya. This contest in turn inspired our legacy campaign, #4Eva.
"Heartfelt Images started in 2000 after I had been to a medical education meeting where I went to a session that was entitled the 'The Use of Photography and Critical Thinking.' And I thought, I wonder if I can bring that idea back and when I’m teaching medical students about the heart, give them the opportunity to use a camera and conceptualize the heart artistically?
