In Your Likeness: The Anatomy Video and Imagery Diversity (AVID) project- presented by Dave Andrews

March 7, 2024 @ 9:00 pm - 9:20 pm BST

The purpose of the Anatomy Video and Imagery Diversity (AVID) project is to create anatomical illustrations and short instructional videos that depict the diversity of humans, including people of different ages, sexes, body compositions, skin tones, hair colours and styles. People with amputations, prosthetics, tattoos and piercings are also portrayed in the images that have been produced to date.

This joint initiative between the University of Windsor and the University of Calgary engages medical illustrators and students, many of whom are from equity-deserving groups, to create the images and videos. These products are stored in an open digital repository that can be accessed by anyone worldwide for teaching and other non-commercial purposes.

This presentation will provide an overview of the AVID project, illustrate how it will help students see their likeness in the material they are learning, and introduce the digital repository and samples of the content currently available within it.
