The History of Knowledge
About the Artwork
This watercolor is meant to acknowledge medicine’s long history of taking advantage of underprivileged peoples and their bodies in the pursuit of knowledge and advancement of the field. While we will continue to move forward and practice medicine in ever more ethical ways, the impact of the heritable trauma caused by the medical field persists in our society today and will continue without ever vigilant pushes to protect all people.
