For the past 20 years, Dr. Jeffrey Levine has photographed elders in his medical practice and across the U.S. His photos have been published in many medical journals and textbooks. This Thursday, he will be giving a lecture at the opening of his photography exhibition, Aging Through a Physician's Lens, in New York at the NY Academy of Medicine (1216 Fifth Avenue at 103rd Street). The exhibit will be open for viewing from 5 to 7 pm and his one-hour lecture begins at 7.
The exhibit, which has been travelling through medical schools and libraries across America, combines the themes of art and medicine, and reveals geriatrics as the most humanistic of medical specialties. The photos selected present 4 aspects of
human aging: Social Networks, Self-Expression, Spirituality, and
Frailty. The show will be in the President's Gallery at the Academy until January 2010. Advance registration required. No admission fee. Click here to register.
