Nurse-poet and memoirist Davis reads from her new collection, The Heart’s Truth: Essays on the Art of Nursing. Richard Selzer has said the collection “should be required reading at every nursing school in the country. In writing of the highest quality, it offers a powerful and moving portrait of what it means to be a nurse."
Narrative Medicine Rounds are lectures or readings presented by scholars, clinicians, or writers engaged in work at the interface between narrative and health care. Rounds are usually held on the first Wednesday of each month from 5 to 7 pm in the Columbia University Medical Center Faculty Club, followed by a reception. Rounds are free and open to the public. Students, staff, faculty, patients, friends, and interested others are warmly welcome to join us.
