A dry and silent world: living with hidden disabilities
A collaboration between King’s College London’s Centre for Craniofacial & Regenerative Biology and Emma Barnard, brokered and supported by the Cultural Institute at King’s.
In collaboration with:
Professor Abigail Tucker, Dr Tathyane Harumi Nakajima Teshima, Dr Monireh Mozaffari, Dr Doris Cuckovic
The central idea of the project is that the ear and salivary glands are anatomically hidden and the resulting disability from the dysfunction of these organs is in turn overlooked. Drawing attention and awareness of relevant clinicians is essential to enhance the care of these vulnerable patient groups.
