Re-humanizing Medicine: A Holistic Framework for Transforming Your Self, Your Practice, and the Culture of Medicine (AYNI BOOKS)
Throughout the field of medicine, science and data reign supreme. In his new book, David R. Kopacz, MD, argues that this has resulted in a predominantly dehumanized profession. If medicine is to be effective, claims Kopacz, doctors must integrate a more holistic and human framework into their training, their practice, and their own personal understanding and self-care. To learn more about Kopacz’s impassioned challenge to the field of medicine and his map for individual and systematic transformation that has implications far beyond the medical field, join us at this special reading and signing with the author.
I was reading the bio on your website and my interest is piqued. Introducing creativity to any environment, in my humble opinion, is beneficial.
I use to work for a financial firm, the owner, of course, was into art, it housed many forms of artistic expression.
At every turn, there was a piece of art, whether it was a wall mural, a statue, or a few pieces of metal fused together to create a vision. It inspired a feeling of adventure, created a more festive and productive environment.
I’m going to enjoy your blog. 😉
Thanks so much for visiting the blog and your comments on creativity. Art is such an important part of any environment to feel alive and sustaining. I write about creativity as one of the intrinsic domains of being fully human in health care, but I also have some of my own work (poetry, art and photography) up on my website:
Check it out if you are interested…
Definitely. I look forward to it.
