To honor Ray Andrews' stewardship of the Donaghue Foundation from 1993 through 2007, the Trustees established an annual lecture series in his name that focuses on the voice of the patient. This lecture series gives expression to the patient's experience from a variety of perspectives.
Karen Barrow is the creator of "Patient Voices" for the New York Times on the web. Patient Voices features real stories from people coping with everything from attention deficit disorder to pancreatic cancer. In each installment of "Patient Voices," six to ten individuals living with a particular ailment share their experiences.
Ms. Barrow captures these very personal stories through recorded interviews and photographs that appear regularly on the The New York Times Well Blog. Karen Barrow holds a MA in biomedical journalism from New York University and a BA in biology from Cornell University. To read more information on Patient Voices click here.
This lecture is open to the public. Please call or email the Foundation at 860.521.9011 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you plan to attend so we can properly prepare for the reception.
