Inspired by Humans of New York, Nafisa Husein created a project in January 2017 to feature the hard-working individuals of the hospital and the ICU-Bridge program. Through portrait photography and insightful interviews, this photoblog initiative tells the stories of the humans of the hospital.
The Humans of the Hospital photoblog features all kinds of people who either volunteer or work as part of the ICU Bridge Program team. There may be a misconception that if you are in the sciences, you are probably not interested in the arts and vice-versa. Guess what? It is possible and in fact more common than you think!

Photography has always been one of my passions and what better way to explore it further than using it to convey the stories of the hardworking men and women in our hospitals and the ICU Bridge Program?
Starting from 2021, Laura Rendon is the HOTH Coordinator for the ICUBP and continue the excellent work that Nafisa began. Stay tuned!
