5.3.23 Shireen Heidari

Excited to hear Dr. Shireen Heidari, MD discuss storytelling in medicine. Dr. Heidari is a palliative care and family medicine physician. In addition to clinical responsibilities, she program director for the Stanford University Hospice and Palliative Fellowship. She also writes about the importance of human connection and stigma around healthcare workers seeking help for their mental health. Her work has appeared in The New England Journal of MedicineThe Lancet Respiratory Medicine, and The Intima. She hopes that by sharing her own story, she can continue being part of this conversation as we advocate for culture change in medicine and more sustainable practice. Outside of her clinical and mentorship work, she is likely with family or outside chasing her border collie. Click on her picture to join the Zoom lecture!
