Caring at the End of Life

a New Medical Humanities Series

When: Tues, Feb. 28th at 12:30pm

Where: Jordan Medical Education Building, RM 504


This new series in Medical Humanities is a monthly luncheon seminar that invites students across the healthcare community to engage with veteran practitioners and faculty on concrete, clinical issues that prompt more fundamental questions: what does it mean to heal? how does one measure wellness? how do doctors and nurses determine when their responsibility for making someone well is complete?  How is the flourishing of patient and caregiver related — or not?
