This paper will delve into some of the scientific and artistic reasoning that found its way into influencing the creation of Language, Image, and Rural Healthcare. All of those reasons, whether they stem from science, art, or personal experience, they were all connected by their focus of exploring the role of language and imagery within the patient provider relationship. I remember a dinosaur poster and a diagnosis. Hopefully others will remember much more than that.
