Podcast Guest Elizabeth Jameson Does TED Talk

Podcast guest, Elizabeth Jameson, is an artist specializing in the intersection of art and science. As a person living with Multiple Sclerosis, she uses neuro-technology to transform her brain scans into a vibrant, unique form of portraiture that celebrates the imperfect body and brain. Jameson collaborates with scientists, health care providers, and those living with illness to spark conversations and deepen the complex narrative of disability and disease. Today she focuses on how art and design can assist in honoring the human experience of illness, specifically in clinical spaces such as the waiting room. Ms. Jameson’s most recent project, #FacingMS, uses art, storytelling and technology to access the untapped potential of time spent in waiting rooms. Her work is shown at major universities, hospitals, and neuroscience centers throughout the world.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx

I’m so honored to know her and can share her work with all of you!
