Each year, the first year medical students at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA hold a special event, The Ceremony of Thanks, to honor those who generously donated their bodies to further their education.
We hope you’ll join us for the next Public Health Grand Round on Tuesday. May 1 from 12-1pm
We’re excited to have, Emeritus Scientist, Dr. Ian Crozier, speak on:
“SURVIVORS STORY: Dual citizenship at the Ebola bedside”
More information on Dr. Crozier's talk is below, including the Link to RSVP.
We hope to see many of you there!
The conference is hosted in the UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs and is centered on the distinctive and multifaceted issues affecting the Latinx community. The conference provides a vital platform and space for students from diverse concentrations, professionals and community members to engage in learning and critical dialogue regarding evidence-based and/or community supported practices. It aims to bring awareness of health issues that affect the Latinx community. The presenters are carefully selected based on their expertise, motivation for working with Latinx populations, ability to relay information and their experience with cultural sensitivity. Through our work, we give understanding of cultural implications that might prevent Latinxs from acquiring the health services they may need.
We hope to increase knowledge of this issue and help educate people on how they are able to promote physical, mental, and spiritual wellbeing amongst their Latinx clients, friends and family members. The Latinx Caucus would like to not only invite you to this great event, but we'd like to extend the invitation for anyone who is interested in host and co-sponsoring a workshop at this event to bring increased awareness of health issues (access, quality of service, health education, need for culturally sensitive practices, etc) currently affecting Latinxs in Los Angeles and ways to best support them.

Calling all clinician storytellers!
We aim to collect and share stories of the clinician experience. We believe storytelling is central to our jobs as clinicians—we come to see patients through their histories, and narrative competence is an important clinical skill. With an increasing tendency towards formulaic medicine, the space for narrative storytelling has changed. In the name of consistency and efficiency, we strip many of the stories we hear of rich comedy, social commentary, and emotional turmoil. In essence, we leave out the moments that make our interactions feel human.
The UCLA Gold Humanism Honor Society has created an opportunity to reflect on our experiences, to understand how we have changed through those experiences, and to connect with each other at a live storytelling event on Thursday, May 10th.
Are you interested in telling one of your stories? We ask that you please submit a brief outline of your story (to be told in 5-7 min) to DGSOMstorytelling@gmail.com by Tuesday, April 10th. All submissions will be reviewed by the event committee, and 8 will be selected. The 8 storytellers will work with storytelling coaches to transform their written submissions into spoken word. On Thursday, May 10th the UCLA Health community will come together for a night of live storytelling to have fun, to celebrate creative expression, and to reclaim space for storytelling in medicine.
We are deeply indebted to The Nocturnists who inspired this event and to Emily Silverman, MD who has been generously guiding us through its creation. Subscribe to their podcast here.
Here are some tips on what we are looking for:
A note: if you decide to include patients and their friends/family as characters, a good rule of thumb for preserving confidentiality is that your characters should not be able to recognize themselves in your story. Some ways to achieve this: don't include names or dates, consider changing key characteristics (e.g. if a hat or backpack was a key feature of your patient, make it a scarf or a necklace), and don't make diseases too recognizable (e.g. lymphangioleiomyomatosis should be changed to "lung disease").
Thanks and we look forward to hearing your stories!
