DAVID GAMBLE

You are cordially invited to a cocktail reception to meet the artist 

Wednesday, July 17 
5:00 to 7:30 pm

Hilton Asmus Contemporary
716 North Wells  *  Chicago

Since the mid-1970s, David Gamble's passion for photography has led the London-born artist across the globe, where he has worked for The New Yorker, Elle and Time-Life publications, winning prestigious awards for his work - including the 1987 Grand Prix European Award naming him the best photographer in Europe, the 1989 World Press Award and the 1989 American Photography Award.

Based in New Orleans, David Gamble is a multidisciplinary artist whose body of work consists of paintings, works on paper, and photographs, all of which have been exhibited globally. Over his decades-long career spanning the commercial, journalistic, and fine art realms, Gamble has photographed such illustrious figures as Stephen Hawking, Neil deGrasse Tyson and the Dalai Lama with several of his portraits included in the permanent collections of the National Portrait Gallery in London and the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery in Washington, DC. 

In 1988, Sotheby's New York hosted one of the most talked-about auctions of the decade, the sale of the Estate of Andy Warhol. In addition to paintings and sculpture, some of the most sought-after items were Warhol's personal effects, including decor, clothing, and even his 1974 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow. The goal of the sale was to raise funds for the then fledgling Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. 
  
Soon after Warhol's death, David Gamble was permitted access to Warhol's East 66th street House, Factory and Warehouse. There, he captured the placement of Warhol's belongings as the artist had lived with them over the years. Rather than simply documenting the space, Gamble's still-lifes capture the humanity and fierce individuality of the artist.

The High Cost of Tick-Borne Disease Misdiagnosis






The High Cost of Tick-Borne Disease Misdiagnosis

  Nearly 36 percent of patients with a tick-borne disease spent more than $10,000 on tests, treatments, appointments, and other costs associated with their disease, a new IGeneX survey found.

The survey analyzed the cases of 198 patients from 2018 and 2019 who were tested by IGeneX, a leading testing lab in California. Researchers sought to determine how long it took for patients to obtain a proper diagnosis, how many doctors they had visited, and how much financial impact they had ultimately incurred.

According to the survey:
•    45% of patients needed more than three years to obtain the proper diagnosis
•    65% of patients were forced to quit a job or cut back on their hours due to their symptoms
•    24% of patients saw more than ten doctors before receiving a proper diagnosis
•    86% of patients suffer from long-term side effects from not having been diagnosed sooner

Most experts agree that the best patient outcomes are achieved when Lyme disease and other tick-borne diseases are diagnosed and treated as early as possible. “When a tick-borne illness is misdiagnosed, the disease-causing infection has more time to spread, which can lead to more severe or chronic health issues,” says Dr. Jyotsna Shah, President of IGeneX. “That can lead to months and even years of escalating costs for patients and their families due to ongoing doctor visits, diagnostic tests, ineffective medications, and other medical expenses.”

Tick-borne diseases are on the rise and prevention should be on everyone’s mind, particularly during the spring, summer, and early fall when ticks are most active. Prevention and early detection are part of the safety protocol extended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Researchers hope that the survey will help educate the public on the risks associated with delaying testing or relying on old testing techniques. "In our view, many patients are missed because much of the testing recommended by general practitioners is based on technology from 25 years ago," says Dr. Shah. "Science has progressed, and we can now give patients a much more accurate diagnosis than was available years ago."

For an infographic of key findings from the survey, please go here. For a complete view of the survey results, please go here. For more information on tick-borne diseases and how to get tested, please visit www.igenex.com or www.cdc.gov.

The Chicago Jazz Festival is produced by the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events and programmed by the Jazz Institute of Chicago. It is sponsored in part by 90.9FM WDCB, Allstate Insurance Company, American Airlines, Capital One, Chicago Jazz Magazine, Chicago Transit Authority, Chicago Tribune, CLTV-ChicagoLand’s Television, Downbeat Magazine, Stella Artois and WGN-Television.

For the Chicago Jazz Festival in Millennium Park, some important changes are coming to improve security and the visitor experience at the park. The City of Chicago will implement a security perimeter and bag check for all concerts and events that take place in the park. New this year, outside alcohol will be prohibited in the park during the Chicago Jazz Festival. Visitors will have additional food and beverage options at various price points available for purchase inside the venue. Subject to bag search at the security perimeter, guests will continue to be allowed to bring their own food and non-alcoholic beverages to all events at Millennium Park.
