HealtheVoices17: The Session Illustrations

During the weekend of April 21-23, I had the opportunity to attend the HealtheVoices17 conference in Chicago.  It was an amazing experience, bringing together 105 advocates from around the world, who represented 35 different health conditions.   I’m still trying to wrap my head around the events of the weekend, and will have more posts on it soon.  As a start, though, I want to share the illustrations that two incredibly talented artists created to document each session as they were taking place.  Great work, Monica and Kevin!
