The College of Integrative Sciences and Arts' Humanities Lecture Series invites you to join this diverse panel of healthcare practitioners, patients and students in considering the role of empathy as a response to the stresses on healthcare professionals and patient care, as well as the larger role that empathy can play in healthcare delivery in the United States.

 

During this extraordinary time where COVID-19 has already claimed 200,000 lives in the United States and healthcare practitioners are under tremendous stress, it seems appropriate to address the role that empathy must play in a holistic model of health that accounts for mind, body and emotional well-being. Panelists will draw on memoir, practice and emerging theories as a response to this present historical moment.
