This week’s events:

The Examined Life Conference

October 12-14, 2017

We seek to explore the intersections between the arts and medicine. How can they be of use to each other? How can they interact to make each more than they were without the other? Enjoy discussions and presentations on how the arts can be used in medical education and patient and provider care. Experience works by others like you: people who are trying to get along in the world of health care.

MHH writer Katherine Standefer will be hosting a pre-conference workshop and giving a conference presentation.
