Narrative Med Art by Sapana Adhikari, MD

View Sapana Adhikari, MD’s artwork here. As an Emergency Medicine physician, my day doesn’t end at the end of a busy shift. These rich interactions occupy my mind for weeks, months, and years and greatly influence my work. I aim to document the human experience from my unique perspective as a physician. I want my viewers to glimpse my world, thoughts, and opinions regarding health, disease, and the human body. I hope to share the beauty of the emotional highs and devastating lows that make up the human experience and share my small contribution.
