Join the College of Medicine – Tucson for its annual Cindy Wool Memorial Seminar on Humanism in Healthcare. Please RSVP here.

About the speaker: Danielle Ofri, MD, PhD

Danielle Ofri is one of the foremost speakers about the doctor-patient relationship and bringing humanity back to health care. At a time when frustration is at an all-time high for doctors, nurses, patients, and their families, Danielle’s unique voice and extraordinary perceptiveness help unravel the complex layers of modern medicine. Danielle writes regularly for the New York Times about medicine and the critical connection between doctor and patient. Her newest book, "What Patients Say; What Doctors Hear," explores how refocusing the conversations between doctors and patients can lead to improved health outcomes. Her previous books include "What Doctors Feel: How Emotions Affect the Practice of Medicine" and "Medicine in Translation: Journeys with My Patients." As a practicing internist at Bellevue Hospital, Danielle speaks with the authenticity of a physician directly engaged in the front lines of medical care. On a daily basis she confronts the major medical issues of our time without losing focus on the individual patient.
