Ronald Epstein

Ronald Epstein joins us to speak about Attending: Medicine, Mindfulness, and Humanity.

When I was little, the medical profession seemed very removed from human experience. It was clinical and antiseptic not just medically, but personally. It seems there is a shift to acknowledging and even working with the mental and emotional side of the equation, too, but that requires some understanding, and mindfulness can help.

Ronald M. Epstein is a family physician, palliative care physician, writer, researcher and teacher of communication and mindful practice in medicine.
