E327– Inner Voice – A Heartfelt Chat with Dr. Foojan. In this episode, Dr. Foojan Zeine chats with ELIZABETH HORN, who has been a healthcare communicator for over twenty years and is the cofounder and codirector of The ART of Infertility, for which she has curated thirty exhibits since its inception in 2014. The ART of Infertility was the 2018 recipient of the Hope Award for Innovation given by RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association for its work communicating patient experiences through arts programming with INFERTILITIES, A Curation. Elizabeth Horn, Maria Novotny, and Robin Silbergleid seek to break through the silence, shame, stigma, and isolation surrounding trouble with conceiving or bearing a child while also demonstrating how central creativity is to grieving and healing. Through personal stories, vignettes, poetry, and works of visual art, this collection captures the anxiety, fear, frustration, anger, stress, and sadness familiar to everyone living with infertility—and not just older white heterosexual couples. Infertilities, A Curation honors the experiences and perspectives of a diversity of individuals living with infertility—women and men; white, Black, Latinx, and Asian; single parents by choice; nonbinary and transgender individuals; heterosexual couples; lesbian and queer-identified couples; and anyone with a medical condition that makes conceiving or bearing a child impossible. As the curator stresses, this collection clarifies: “Infertility does not discriminate.” Check out my website: www.FoojanZeine.com.
