Portraits in Pediatrics
A unique form of AAP Body Language, Portraits in Pediatrics, were captured by Robert Fogarty, journalism major turned photographer who began the Dear World project in New Orleans with a simple premise—take a portrait to show a person’s face with their message.

Make Your Photo
Step 1, Plan
Think before you write. What is most meaningful about your work in pediatrics? What are you doing, or need, to advance the physical, mental and social well-being for all children? Be creative!
Step 2, Do
Write your message on your face, hands, arms, legs or feet (you may need assistance from a friend or co-worker). Choose a dry-erase marker certified AP Nontoxic conforms to ASTM D-4263. Marker can be removed from skin with an alcohol pad, baby wipe or soap and water.
Step 3, Act
Take your picture, check that your message is clear, then post your image on our Facebook wall at www.Facebook.com/AAPexperience or email it to NCE@aap.org.
