Off-site: Humanism and Ethics Night

The University of Michigan Medical School will be hosting "Your Doctor Writes Poetry: What Purpose Does Art Serve in Medicine?" a Humanism and Ethics Night with Harvard physician-poet Dr. Rafael Campo. This event is sponsored by the Arnold P. Gold Foundation for Humanism in Medicine and co-hosted by Literati Bookstore at the University of Michigan Museum of Art (UMMA). 
 
Dr. Rafael Campo will read poems and a short excerpt of prose that illustrate the deep connections between poetry and healing.  Issues that the work he will share address include expressing empathy and compassion, confronting human suffering and the end of life, and understanding the tensions between the dispassionate facts of disease and the more complex and rich truths of the experience of illness.
 
This event will include a poetry reading, Q&A session, as well as a catered dinner and discussion.
