Narrative Medicine Rounds: Robin Romm


Feb 03, 2010 - 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.


Faculty Club of Columbia University Medical Center, Physicians & Surgeons Building, 630 W. 168th St., 4th Floor, New York, NY

Romm reads from her acclaimed book The Mercy Papers: A Memoir in Three Weeks, written about the three weeks prior to her mother’s death.  In a front cover review, the New York Times Book review called it “a furious blaze of a book.”

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.
