General Session
Patient Experience

Regina Holliday is an activist, artist, speaker and author. She is part of the movement known as participatory medicine. She and others in this movement believe that the patient is a partner with their provider and both should work together as a team. Holliday is a mother and a widow. In 2009, she painted a series of murals depicting the need for clarity and transparency in medical records. This advocacy mission was inspired by her late husband Frederick Allen Holliday II and his struggle to get appropriate care during 11 weeks of continuous hospitalization at five facilities. Her paintings became part of the national debate on health care reform and helped guide public policy. Today, she continues to share her message of patient empowerment and inclusion in health care decision making. Holliday also began an advocacy movement called "The Walking Gallery." The Gallery consists of medical providers and advocates who wear patient story paintings on the backs of business suits. This "walking wall" of 400+ individuals who wear personal patient narrative paintings is changing minds and opening hearts. They are attending medical conferences and providing a patient voice, and by doing so, are changing the conversation.
