Life Images of Today and Tomorrow

This will not be offered until January, 2016.

Utilizing photography for Cancer Center patients and families, Life Images of Today and Tomorrow offers portrait photography in a partnership between the Complementary Therapies Program and faculty the Washtenaw Community College Photography program

Washtenaw Community College Photography program students and faculty offer the opportunity for portrait photography sesssions on site at the Cancer Center. Select images in both black/white and color are given to those photographed on a flash drive along with informative tools about the meaning of photographs and suggestions for integrating images into expressive creations. Aligned with Art Therapy, workshops and individual sessions are also available for patients to create art with the images.

These therapeutic opportunities will be offered monthly for patients and their families, beginning January, 2016. Patients who would most benefit can be referred at any point in their care. PFSS staff will screen patients and schedule them for photography sessions. To refer patients or for further information, please contact the Department of Patient & Family Support Services program at 734-615-4012.

This alliance was made possible by a Friends Gift Shops University of Michigan Health System grant that has supported the funding of equipment and resources for this photography opportunity offered to patients at no cost to them.
