HAEMR’s LitEM is very excited to host yet another exciting discussion! This month we are honored to host Dr. Suzanne Koven author of Letter to a Young Female Physician (attached) published in NEJM.
Dr. Koven is a physician at MGH and an acclaimed writer. Her essays, reviews, and columns have appeared in the Boston Globe, the New England Journal of Medicine and numerous other publications. We are truly lucky to have her.
If you haven’t heard of us: LitEM is a reading group in which HAEMR faculty and residents read, discuss, and reflect on literary works that take less than ~20 minutes to read, but are still full of content that can spark a lively discussion with the author.
Adaira and I would like to introduce you to the LitEM, HAEMR’s first article club – a book club appropriated to your busy residency schedule! Every month we will pick medical and non-medical articles that take less than 30 minutes to read and gather together to discuss them -whenever possible-with the author! The goal: to reflect on literary works and become better, happier humans – with the added perk of 1 hour of ASL credit!
This month’s INAUGURAL meeting will feature EM physician, New York Times op-ed contributor and writer for The Guardian, Dr. Farzon Nahvi. We will be discussing his piece Police Officers Need to Get Better at CPR featured in the New York Times (https://nyti.ms/2jRLpFC)
