OUR MISSION

We are creating personalized digital portraits of healthcare professionals. Each piece is hand drawn with care. Our primary goal is for these portraits to be used to recognize healthcare professionals for their hard work in the fight against COVID-19. We also plan to share stories from their experiences on the front lines. We hope they may also act as a gift for special occasions (like upcoming graduations), used for social media graphics, or just for fun to make someone’s day!

Our Team

We are a group of 3 medical students from UofT & UBC. This initiative combines a passion for graphic design, wanting to support COVID-19 relief efforts, and to recognize healthcare heroes.

Welcome to Echogram! I'm a medical student at the University of Toronto, as well as an amateur digital illustrator. Echogram began with a vision to commend our future colleagues – the courageous heroes in our healthcare system who are powering the frontlines of this pandemic. Thank you for helping us support them. When I'm not doodling, you'll probably find me doing HIIT, or finding the perfect black bean brownie recipe!

Hey! I’m a first year medical student studying at the University of British Columbia. After hearing the stories of so many healthcare workers on the frontlines, I wanted to help create this initiative to celebrate their hard work. When I’m not working on echogram, I enjoy hitting the tennis courts for some exercise and baking up a storm!

Hi there! I'm a medical student at the University of Toronto. While my classmates and I have been pulled off the front lines, I wanted to be a part of this initiative to try and recognize all those that remain deep in the trenches of the fight. It also lets me use some of my down time (that I normally wouldn't have in clerkship) to explore my hobbies in graphics and website design!
