New Faces of Leprosy
Diana Lockwood, retired Emeritus Professor of Tropical Medicine, will offer insight into the importance of the New Faces for Leprosy project. Also present will be special guest Tom Bradley a documentary photographer and artist specialising in leprosy. We hope that the project will challenge the conventional perception of leprosy, focusing on the positive message that leprosy can be cured and that people affected by leprosy can go on to reclaim and rebuild their lives.
