I found this session to be incredibly powerful-there are few times that I can remember being absolutely speechless, and this was one of them!
I realized the importance of education in helping people with disabilities and the true harm of ignorance
Often these seemingly common sense issues such as simple etiquette are lost in the hustle and bustle of an outpatient clinic practice and are confounded with our lack of expertise
I enjoyed the speakers; words of reflections from experiences of overcoming the challenges in peoples’ lives first hand is better than any lecture!
This was a very profound session, one in fact that often brought tears to my eyes. I will hold these stories in my heart as I progress through my medical training. Additionally, the Ten Commandments described are outstanding tools that should be kept on every medical students’ white coat or name tag
This was a great experience. With the stress of medical school-trying to memorize a billion facts and figures it is easy to forget why we decided to become physicians in the first place. Listening to everyone share their stories really helped me to remember why and to feel excited about the impact I will have on patients and their families. Thank you so much!
