Compassion in Health Care – Does it Exist?

Tuesday Feb 11 | 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Sponsored by the TCU Alumni Association and the TCU and UNTHSC School of Medicine, Evonne Kaplin-Liss (M.D., M.P.H.) Assistant Dean for Narrative Reflection and Patient Communication, will moderate a fascinating discussion via teleconference with author Dr. Stephen Trzeciak to answer this question.

He will share their compelling research that health care is currently in the midst of a compassion crisis. The authors’ message aligns with the School’s mission: to transform health care by inspiring Empathetic Scholars™. You’ll leave the event with their prescription to embrace those in need of compassion and see how it transforms your experience.

“Can a Woman be a Shankaracharya?”  A Guru’s Quest for Gender Equality in Contemporary Hinduism
TCU’s interdisciplinary department of Women & Gender Studies puts women, gender, and sexuality at the center of academic investigation. The department promotes inquiry into the intersections of gender with other identity categories; the workings of power in society; and the means of advancing social justice and equality. Through research, teaching and learning, and collaboration, the program fosters feminist and interdisciplinary analysis across social, historical, cultural and global contexts, products and practices.

About English Department

TCU English Presents: “The Last Lecture” Celebrating Dr. Richard Enos
Since 1873, the English Department has remained at the heart of academics at TCU. As one of the largest departments on campus, we are proud to work with students at every level in their education, from first-year writing and literature courses to doctoral studies in English or Rhetoric and Composition. Today, the English Department approaches both venerable and popular subjects – from Jane Austin, Harriet Beecher Stowe, and Kenneth Burke or missionary writers, radical journalists, and comic books – with traditional and cutting edge tools. We work in both dusty and digital archives to advance knowledge about the centrality of culture in our lives. Our faculty have garnered significant scholarly recognitions in a broad range of intellectual areas, with special focus on British, American, and postcolonial literatures, rhetoric and composition, and creative writing. The department offers two majors in English and Writing, a minor in these areas, as well as Creative Writing, and the Ph.D. in English or Rhetoric and Composition.
