#TheWalkingGallery – Day 2 of #dchealth DC Health Innovation Week

I don’t know what else to say except “huge success.” As I was talking to Susannah Fox (@susannahfox) near one of the technology alcoves at The Center for Total Health (@kptotalhealth), I was struck (again) at how far we had come from a borrowed conference room and a donated delicatessen wall. Or really what I mean is, how far Regina Holliday (@reginaholilday) has come.

The jackets were inspiring, moving, heartbreaking, full of life and love.

I would say my two favorites are David Hale’s (@lostonroute66); I am drawn to it because of the similarity to the album cover of Gerry Rafferty’s Baker Street (link to iTunes) (“And when you wake up it’s a new mornin’;The sun is shinin’ it’s a new morning;You’re goin’;You’re goin’ home.)


And Lygeia Ricciardi’s (@lygeia). The moment I saw it I was moved by the mother-child bond between herself and her daughter Ada.

After Regina made her remarks, we lined up along the walking wall, and covered it , 80 feet worth. And then we went for a walk (some ran), of course.

Thank you Regina for letting me be a part of your work and world, and for the great start to DC Health Innovation Week. With thanks also to Marsha Goodman-Wood (@goodmanwood) who entertained us with her music; the children standing in front of the walking wall in the photo below are hers.

The rest of my photographs are below. Feel free to use them in your blog posts, tweets, or other work
