The Novartis Foundation, originally known as the Ciba Foundation, is well known to scientists and clinicians around the world for its symposia. From an on-line posting: "Dr. Kodner is the Solon and Bettie Gershman Professor of Colon and Rectal Surgery at the Washington University School of Medicine and the Director of the Center for the Study of Ethics and Human Values. Dr. Kodner s over forty years of medical experience includes serving as Professor of Surgery and Chief of the Section of Colon and Rectal Surgery, and ten years of private practice.

Most recently, in his capacity as Director of the Center for the Study of Ethics and Human Values, Dr. Kodner led a collaborative, interdisciplinary effort to launch a Palliative Care Program at Barnes-Jewish Hospital and Washington University." From Wikipedia: "A colostomy is a surgical procedure in which a stoma is formed by drawing the healthy end of the large intestine or colon through an incision in the anterior abdominal wall and suturing it into place. This opening, in conjunction with the attached stoma appliance, provides an alternative channel for feces to leave the body. It may be reversible or irreversible depending on the circumstances." From Wikipedia: "Ileostomy can refer to a stoma (surgical opening) constructed by bringing the end or loop of small intestine (the ileum) out onto the surface of the skin and to the surgical procedure which creates this opening. Intestinal waste passes out of the ileostomy and is collected in an artificial external pouching system which is adhered to the skin. Ileostomies are usually sited above the groin on the right hand side of the abdomen." From an on-line posting: Dr. Craig ".worked as an ophthalmic illustrator at Baylor College of Medicine from 1972-1983, in addition to painting for CIBA and then Novartis., Dr. Craig was Senior Artist and Consultant for Clinical Symposia, a contributor to the NovaCON Disease Education Series (CD-ROM) as well as the Netter Collection of Medical Illustrations.Dr. Craig received his medical degree and a postgraduate degree in ophthalmology from The University of Texas medical Branch, Galveston."
