Presentation to Medical Students alongside solo exhibition at UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine
26 October 2015

I was invited to exhibit my work in a solo show at UCLA Medical Centre in Los Angeles (26 Oct – 10 Jan) and University of Southern California (from Jan 2016). I visited Los Angeles in late October 2015 to speak to medical students and staff at both sites about my lived experience of Compulsive Skin Picking, my artwork and recovery.

The trip helped deepen my understanding of diagnosis, treatment, and new research. My art practice will be enhanced by these new encounters, and it is my intention to continue advocacy to help those who might currently be suffering, as well and continuing to raise the profile of this disorder to health professionals and others.
