Refugee Images Featured at Mayo Clinic Conference

October 17, 2018

I am very excited to share this video of Julia Lorence and Chance Marostica from the 2018 Mayo Clinic Transform Conference. Featuring my images, they spoke about REACT (Refugee Education and Clinic Team) – a collaboration between students from Mayo Clinic School of Medicine & undergraduate students from Arizona State University.

This conference, hosted by Mayo Clinic, is the preeminent annual event for people dedicated to boldly creating the future of health care. At Transform 2018, they explored pivotal opportunities that produce health that matters to people and offer a platform that features expanded opportunities to connect, network, and collaborate.

Julia had reached out to me regarding my work with local Phoenix charity Gathering Humanity, and I was happy to provide my imagery documenting refugees for their talk. It was an absolute pleasure and honor knowing that in some small way, I have come full circle. I grew up in Rochester, Minnesota, a Mayo kid whose father worked at Mayo Clinic for 38 years, and I also graduated from Mayo High School. To see my imagery on display at a groundbreaking conference that brings education and healthcare to those in need, warms my heart.
