Narrative Medicine in Action


I subscribe to a medicine-and-humanities e-zine called Pulse. Today I got this story in my in-box.

Last week, my freshman-comp students and I were talking about the differences between doctors who listen to their patients and those who don't. I'm going to give the students this story to read; it's as powerful an example as any I've seen.

I hope all of you appreciate it, too.
