Beyond the Diagnosis at Broad Institute
01 February 2019 - 01 April 2019
415 Main Street, Cambridge
Hosted by Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard
Broad Institute is proud to host the Beyond the Diagnosis art exhibit for a fourth consecutive year. For 2019 the exhibit will be installed in the Stanley Building lobby, 75 Ames Street, Cambridge MA from Friday, February 1 to Monday, April 1.
It takes an average of eight years to identify a diagnosis for a patient with a rare disease, and for many, few treatment options exist. One route to improve the lives of those suffering, is through research, to better understand these diseases and create new ways to diagnose and treat them.
The Beyond the Diagnosis art exhibit features portraits of patients suffering from rare diseases. Painted and donated by accomplished artists, the exhibit travels to medical schools, hospitals, and research centers across the globe to encourage those in the biomedical community to look “beyond the diagnosis” and focus on the people involved — particularly patients and their families.
Beyond the Diagnosis is a non-profit advocacy organization that believes art can not only leave a powerful and lasting visual imprint but also create a unique connection for the viewer.
