Artist Regina Holliday is a patient advocate known for her series of murals depicting the need for clarity and transparency in medical records, and for founding the Walking Gallery movement. The Walking Gallery consists of more than 350 volunteer members who make statements about the lapses in health care at public meetings by wearing business suits or blazers painted with patient stories. Holliday’s experiences during her husband’s illness and subsequent death inspired her to use painting as a catalyst for change. Backed by her own patient and caregiving experiences, she travels the globe heralding her message of patient empowerment and inclusion in healthcare decision making. Holliday’s mission is to demand a thoughtful dialog with officials and practitioners on the role patients play in their own healthcare.
