Diane Roka, a Philadelphia-based artist, writer, and "documentary-style drawtographer," attended HSP's program, Unpacking a Psychiatrist: The 217 Boxes of Dr. Henry Anonymous, on November 18. 

A part of the multi-year An Artist Embedded project, the program explored the life and legacy of Dr. John Ercel Fryer, a Temple University professor of psychiatry and nearly-forgotten pioneer of LGBT rights.

Ms. Roka's Micron ink pen sketches captured the program's speakers: playwright Ain Gordon (HSP's Embedded Artist), Dr. Steven Sokoll (Clinical Associate Professor, University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine), and Lisa Nelson-Haynes (Associate Director at the Painted Bride Art Center).
