Motivation is a photography blog that discusses the creative aspects of photography. The posts will include thoughts about images and their interpretation, photographers and their work, technique, workflow, my ongoing projects, and perhaps even the occasional off topic rant.

The Arnold P. Gold Foundation

I am very pleased and that the Arnold P Gold Foundation has recently recognized my Empathy Project, publishing a blog article and interview with me about the project. 

What is the Arnold P. Gold Foundation? They are a wonderful group that is focused on the importance of humanism in medicine and how it affects and integrates into optimal medical care. To put it in their own words, their vision is "to create the Gold Standard in healthcare – compassionate, collaborative and scientifically excellent care – to support clinicians throughout their careers, so the humanistic passion that motivates them at the beginning of their education is sustained throughout their practice. We strive to ensure that care and respect always govern the relationship between practitioner and patient." Their mission is to "sustain the commitment of healthcare professionals to provide compassionate, collaborative and scientifically excellent patient care." Their mission jives extraordinarily well with my goals for this work, and I am very pleased and honored that they have recognized my project in this way. 

To see the blog post and read their interview with me about the origins and goals of the project, hop on over to their blog and the post entitled "In The Empathy Collection, cardiologist shares intimate portraits of patients".
