An Experiment, or an Old Fool and a Young Raven, was selected by Simon Helfgott, MD, MPH. Dr. Helfgott is an Associate Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and also serves as Director of Education & Fellowship Training in the Division of Rheumatology at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts. By purchasing a Rodnan Print at the REF Booth during the 2011 ACR/ARHP Annual Meeting in Chicago, Dr. Helfgott was subsequently selected as the winner of a drawing that gave him the opportunity to select this year’s print. Upon selecting this print, Dr. Helfgott remarked, “I had the privilege of meeting Dr. Rodnan during my fellowship - he had visited our Division for several days and his knowledge of rheumatology was truly encyclopedic. He was the editor of a textbook of rheumatology that helped me pass my Board exams, so I have fond memories of the man.” With regards to the 2012 Rodnan Print that he has selected he noted that, “the offbeat caption and the narrative of this print seemed to be a great example of British humor. Many patients chuckle at these drawings and most inquiries relate to the depiction of podagra: it fascinates people to see how illness was portrayed in art in the 19th century.” Dr. Helfgott encourages all of his ACR colleagues to consider purchasing a print this year. “Not only will it enhance your office space, you will be supporting future generations of rheumatologists. What a legacy!”
About the Prints
In 1994, the estate of former ACR President Gerald P. Rodnan, MD, graciously gave the REF permission to reproduce a limited number of prints from his collection of antique gout artwork. Each year the REF releases a new print in honor of the ACR/ARHP Annual Scientific Meeting. The REF extends many thanks to the Rodnan family for allowing us to share his extensive collection with our supporters.
