Bedside Manner: Exploring Empathy and the Doctor/Patient Relationship

The Massachusetts General Hospital Paul S. Russell, MD Museum of Medical History and Innovation invites you to attend its next evening lecture.

A discussion about the film featuring director Corinne Botz and medical actor/patient/physician Alice Weaver Flaherty, MD, PhD, of the Mass General Department of Neurology, immediately follows. The event will be presented on Tuesday, Nov. 13 at 6 pm in the museum's third floor Putnam Gallery.
