About the Event
The Kern National Network for Caring and Character in Medicine is pleased to present its discussion series: The Medical Profession Through the Lens of Human Flourishing.
Participate in a national conversation where health care professionals can boldly ask fundamental questions about the profession of medicine, discuss its role in advancing human flourishing and consider how to address factors at the individual, community or societal level that can pose barriers to flourishing.
Join us for the first session, “Human Flourishing, Caring and Character in the Medical Profession: To What End?” Through this interactive discussion, learn more about the interrelated concepts of caring and character within medicine and engage in a conversation with other health care professionals on the topic of promoting human flourishing.
This session will feature John Luk, M.D., along with several other KNN colleagues.
Continuing education credits are available, and there is no fee to attend. For more details and registration instructions, visit the University of Wisconsin-Madison website.
