Biomeditations Book Talk with Dr. Stephen Trzeciak
Thursday February 20th, please join us for the inaugural 2020 "Biomeditations Book Talk", an informal series of book presentations on health sciences topics from the UPenn community and beyond.
On Thursday February 20th we'll be joined by Dr. Stephen Trzeciak, one of the authors of Compassionomics: The Revolutionary Scientific Evidence that Caring Makes a Difference. Dr. Trzeciak is an intensivist and Chief of Medicine at Cooper University Health Care and Professor and Chair of Medicine at the Cooper Medical School of Rowan University. His influential work developing the concept and practice of "compassionomics" has been widely publicized in the news media and as a TED Talk. Compassionomics- the scientific study of the effects of compassionate healthcare on patient outcomes, health care economics, and practitioner wellness- is an important emerging concept and Dr. Trzezciak's presentation is sure to spark some thoughtful conversation.
