Practicing from the Heart in the age of Technology
Among the many comments and remarks I've been getting on my book was this special one from Dr. Maggie Gunter (Thank You):
I have thought of you a great deal lately, since I have been enjoying reading a few chapters from your superb book every night before I fall asleep! I just finished it!
As a medical sociologist, I appreciate so much your interest in addressing our current problems with health disparities and inadequate health equity among our diverse populations.
You certainly have made an outstanding contribution to medical students, providers, and to all of us—right in the middle of this stressful pandemic we are all living through. There are so many touching and funny and insightful chapters—and I love your ongoing reminders of the importance of integrating useful modern technology to improve healthcare while never forgetting the central importance of compassion and connecting personally with patients—practicing from the heart, as you so elegantly put it. It is just amazing that you have practiced in so many diverse settings with people of so many languages and cultures. Those experiences clearly taught you so much about providing compassionate and excellent healthcare!
I am so impressed by your writing of this fascinating book. Bravo!
