A great friend of PE , Peg Flowe who is the cool stepmom of Sammie organized a meeting with Wooton High School students in MD to develop web based curriculum in collaboration with student body including students in special ed program. Students were receptive and had lots of ideas regarding inclusion and celebrating difference. We’re planning a 3 phase program,

1) student photoshoots

2) exhibition and presentation of PE with Wooton students included

3) interactive website/blog prototype addressing issues of self esteem, stigma and diversity developed for and by high school students

Also met science and art teachers from the Episcopal High School, private boarding school in the DC area to discuss potential partnership for art and genetics program with the students ultimately creating a SUPPLEMENTARY exhibition for the school that could also be replicated at schools around the country.


Met with University of MD medical to review data we received from our medical students (1st and 2nd year) SURVEY PRE- And POST- POSITIVE Exposure presentation. WOW Amazing responses.. I’m blown away.. This is the beginning of something HUGE!Afterward met with 3 1st year med students interested in internships with PE this summer with added interest in developing web based at a glance guides for med students on genetic conditions and the importance of interacting with people living with genetic conditions. Incredibly inspiring… Med students are so much more than what anyone could possibly think…. Artistic, creative, visionaries….


Speaking today, Monday, to 1st Year medical students at Weill Cornell. I have invited Jonathan Martin from the Marfan Foundation to sit in on the lecture.I believe the Marfan Foundation will be our first partner organization for the curriculum and web base guide developed for and by med students.. Should be a great morning.


Tomorrow, the UN presentation with June Waugh, World Blind Union And UNICEF… A WORLD FIT FOR CHILDREN.. That will be awesome..Speaking today, Monday, to 1st Year medical students at Weill Cornell.
