Anthropologist Dr. Angela Bratton sometimes serves on dissertation committees for the Dept. of Biobehavioral Nursing as a qualitative research specialist. This photo exhibit is part of the data collection known as photo "voice" or "diary" where participants take pictures-in this case of images that *show* their invisible chemo induced neuropathy. This kind of data has so much potential for helping survivors process their experience and to teach family and medical providers about their experience/condition. The gallery is open through early Nov. (W-F 12-4).
