MedChi CME: The New Rockwellian Portrait
Tuesday, September 22, 7:00-8:00 PM - Zoom Webinar
Norman Rockwell, a prolific American artist, evoked compassion, trust, respect and energy in his paintings. His unique abilities garnered the once prized cover page of “The Saturday Evening Post” 321 times over 47 years of his career. Medical portraits by Rockwell, gracing the walls of physician offices for decades draw the viewer in, providing a sense of the community physician. This was the portrait of the physician who cared for all patient needs, from birth to death.
These nostalgic memories are in part, the impetus for Dr. Michele Manahan, President of the Maryland State Medical Society, to present, “Physician Identity: Defining a New Rockwellian Portrait.”
