On the Thursday July 7th, 2011 broadcast at 1PM Pacific and 4PM Eastern time, Lon Levin chats with medical muralist and health care transformation advocate Regina Holliday. Regina is a dynamo in encouraging patient empowerment in our somewhat complex, rather expensive, and more of often than not, marginally accessible 'sick care system' with high degrees of quality variance. 
 
From her blog: 'Regina Holliday is a DC-based patient rights arts advocate. She is currently at work on a series of paintings and blog posts depicting the need for clarity and transparency in medical records. After the death of her husband, Fred Holliday II, on June 17th 2009, she began a large Mural Titled “73 cents.” 
 
This piece can be viewed at 5001 Connecticut Ave. Washington, DC 20008. This piece depicts Holliday family’s nightmare journey through the medical system during Fred’s cancer care. The painting became part of the national healthcare debate and was covered by the BBC, CNN, CBS, AOL, VOA, NPR, The Washington Post and the BMJ. 
Regina Holliday can be found on Twitter as ReginaHolliday and on Facebook as Regina Holliday, Wash DC. She speaks at medical conferences providing the patient voice in discussions about HIT.

Since we've embraced the mantra 'life is art', we thought merging her voice in that conversation to be an inviting and exciting exchange.
