Edward's Syndrome



Petra Kelsey

This print comments on the disconnect between medical student and patient notions of pathologic states: the clinical vs. the emotional. In Edward's Syndrome two parents embrace their stillborn son shortly after delivery. Linoleum screen print on paper with acrylic paint.


Petra Kelsey is a 2nd year medical student at the University of Texas Medical Branch and student scholar in the John P. McGovern Academy for Oslerian Medicine. Her articles have appeared in Texas Medicine Magazine and Explore: the Journal of Health and Healing. She is currently president of UTMB’s Students for Holistic and Integrative Medicine.

This artwork serves as the counterpiece to Irene Mathieu’s poem “her children will have to say”. Read the Deputy Editor's Comment for a powerful commentary on both pieces.
