Jour­neys Through Health: An Art Exhibition

For some, art is an expres­sive out­let for expe­ri­ences related to health and ill­ness. Peo­ple may find hope, strength, and closer rela­tion­ships over the course of their ill­ness, while oth­ers will face despair, iso­la­tion, and a sense of griev­ing for lost pos­si­bil­i­ties. Some­times what arises is a need to express, make sense of, and derive per­sonal mean­ing from what has occured.

Carrageenan is derived from red algae, and commonly used as a thickening agent in food products. It could represent an inexpensive method of prevention against the virus, whereas the vaccine and screening procedures are considerably more expensive.
