“PATIENT CENTERED HEALTH CARE” TALK AT VITERBO OCT. 14
LA CROSSE, Wis. -- Attorney, philosopher, and psychoanalyst William J. Winslade, Ph.D. will speak on “Patient Centered Health Care: The Significance of the Humanities in Medical Education and Clinical Practice” at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 14 in the Viterbo University Fine Arts Center Recital Hall.
“In this country, we’re willing to spend money on rescuing people from the brink of death and even keeping them alive, but what we’re not so great at is investing in restoring them to independence,” Winslade said.
Winslade has appointments at the Institute for the Medical Humanities and the University of Houston’s Health Law and Policy Institute. He holds a Ph.D. in philosophy from Northwestern University, a Ph.D. in psychoanalysis from the Southern California Psychoanalytic Institute, and a law degree from the University of California at Los Angeles.
The event is free and open to the public and reservations are not required. It is sponsored by the D.B. Reinhart Institute for Ethics in Leadership at Viterbo University and the Gundersen Lutheran Medical Foundation.
