  1. Hello,

    I am a graphic designer working with Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. We are creating an internal publication for the Medical Humanities and Bioethics program that discusses the application of the Humanities to the practice of Medicine. On the cover we are featuring a black and white image of Kevorkian’s death machine, as it appeared on your site on May 27, 2009. Would you happen to have a hi-res version of that image for print that we could possibly use? We will include any credit information that you require.

    Thank you very much,

    Kathleen Evans
