Main Content

Jennifer McCormick is a graduate of the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine (Department of Art as Applied to Medicine) and a board certified medical illustrator who produces medical demonstrative evidence used in courts of law. She is also an artist, using a combination of x-rays and hand painted imagery to create paper and transilluminated art pieces. She transforms the real images of injuries (from actual x-rays, MRI's, CT's, etc.) into scenes of healing and hope. In this presentation, McCormick will take viewers on a journey through becoming a medical illustrator, a profession that seeks to visualize every visible and invisible aspect of our bodies and their functions, to becoming an artist, where she creates conversation around non-traditional and spiritual healing. Jennifer's visit is co-sponsored by Duke Law (Academic Technologies) and the Trent Center for Bioethics, Humanities & History of Medicine.
