Abbiamo sempre troppo poco tempo per guardarci attorno. Viviamo di corsa, il lavoro ci assilla, a volte manca anche il tempo per la famiglia. Ma quando ci si ammala allora tutto cambia. Le giornate sono lunghissime e ogni dettaglio dell'ambiente in cui ci si trova diviene interessante. Purtroppo gli ospedali oltre a essere luoghi di sofferenza spesso sono anche squallidi. Elaine con le sue foto apre fantastiche finestre su quel mondo che non ci siamo mai fermati abbastanza a osservare e le pone in luoghi dove c'è tutto il tempo per apprezzarle.

Speaking as a professional fundraiser with 20 years' experience,now retired, I can attest that Elaine Poggi's dedication to her mission, added to the energy with which she promotes it, ensure its ongoing success. Two suggestions: research and follow through on (1) which med schools are studying the effects of attractive environments on patient outcomes, and (2) which corporations, USA and abroad, involved in digital photography would consider requests for major gifts. Then submit relevant proposals. The Foundation for Photo Art in Hospitals is an important project and deserves our generous support.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

...my visits to the Siteman Cancer Center in St. Louis, MO. Elaine's photos are prominent there. To see them, rather than a blank beige wall, and travel in my imagination to, for example, a valley in Umbria, can ease an otherwise stressful event.

The Foundation for Photo/Art in Hospitals is dedicated to providing art that delivers therapeutic benefits to hospital visitors, staff, and patients. Research results reveal that viewing nature photographs lowers blood pressure, anxiety, and reduces the need for pain medication. Elaine Poggi and the Foundation have done an incredible job of assembling a collection of world class photography and placing them in hospitals around the world.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

expand the selection of products that it installs toward creating a healing hospital environment.

Foundation for Photo Art in Hospitals is a remarkable group.They are providing beauty not only to people who are sick but also to the people who work with them and their families. Placing beautiful artwork in hospitals creates an environment of hope and healing and enables people to let go of fear. The impact of the arts in the process of healing was recognized early on by Hippocrates, who understood the importance of uplifting his patients' spirits. Similarly, Galen would set his patients outside in the marketplace, enhancing their healing through contact with the sights and sounds of daily life. The value of a rich and uplifting environment to healing has since been documented in such research as Robert Ulrich's study: "Effects of Interior Design on Wellness: Theory and Recent Scientific Research" (Journal of Health Care Interior Design, 1991), which demonstrated that patients who could view nature through their windows had shorter post-operative hospital stays, made negative comments less often, needed fewer doses of narcotics, and had fewer post-surgical complications. I am very proud to be a part of this organization. This organization promotes healing through beauty!
