"My name is Robert Kelley and I am a 4th year medical student at Touro University in Vallejo, CA. I wanted to share a special project we have been working on for the last 3 years, the Canvas of Hope. It is a collection of works of art created from microscopic images of breast cancer from our pathology department.

Jonathan Hickle: Exploring Hands-on Medical Learning Through Photography

My photographs are meant to capture the exchange of knowledge between patient-instructors and my colleagues.
