What pain relief looks like

design3 Dr. Roger Freeman (DDS) of Infectious Awareables (IA), the fashionable health education company (or the  health-educating fashion company), has chosen the winning design for the challenge he issued earlier this year to illustrate pain relief.

Since 1997, Infectious Awareables (IA) has been in the business of combining fasion and health education. The company designs and sells silk ties, silk scarves, bow ties and boxers bearing colourful electron micrographs of pathogens of public health interest (the fashion part) with tags that provide brief health information (the education part).
