Kelli Dunham

Patient Leader

I am a Brooklyn-based RN and stand up comic and author of seven books of humorous health related nonfiction. and have created a zine series focusing on healthcare for queer folks. I lost two partners to cancer and advocate for caregivers rights as well as culturally appropriate gender inclusive care for LGBT people. I am also the founder and producer of Organ Recital, a patient-focused storytelling festival about bodies health and healthcare that takes places each spring in New York City. I don't believe that laughter is the best medicine; I believe that laughter is the best accompaniment to hard times and um actual medicine.
