The University of South Carolina School of Medicine Library is proudly hosting an exhibit of photography, titled “Our View: Selected Photographic Works” by Donald Wuori, MD and Joanne Wuori, RN, retirees from the UofSC School of Medicine Department of Pediatrics. The exhibit features a wide variety of images of nature and beyond, many of which were taken in South Carolina.

Dr. Wuori served for over 20 years as the Director of the Developmental and Behavioral Pediatric Clinic of the Department of Pediatrics at the UofSC School of Medicine. Joanne Wuori, RN retired from the UofSC School of Medicine, Department of Pediatrics, Division of Pediatric Infectious Diseases, and served as both the clinic nurse and nurse case manager.
Joanne and Dr. Wuori received the Department of Pediatrics “Champions of Children” award for their work with pediatric patients. Upon his retirement, Don received the “Order of the Palmetto”, the highest civilian honor presented by the Governor for his work with South Carolina children having special needs.
While living and working in South Carolina, the Wuoris developed an interest in photography, and especially nature photography. This interest has developed into a passionate hobby. In 2015, Dr. Wuori won first place in the amateur division of the Audubon Photography Awards and his image was displayed in the “Nature’s Best” Photography exhibit at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History.
