Aspen Ideas Festival 2015: Dr. Abraham Verghese Mental Health for the World
Airs Sunday, October 25, at 6 p.m. The incredible technological and scientific advances of the last few decades have paradoxically come with growing patient and physician dissatisfaction. Technical expertise is often essential to save lives, but so are effective communication and trusting partnerships. How do we balance wisdom with knowledge? And care with caring? Join distinguished physician and professor Abraham Verghese in an Aspen Lecture that looks back at the past and forward to envision the future we want.
