Session description: The 2023-24 Gold Humanism Honor Society Initiative, The Gold Compass: Using Humanism to Navigate a Polarized World, invites GHHS members to act as leaders in creating opportunities or modeling the search for ways to interact via civil discourse. Mitigating this divide—the separation we feel within ourselves and with one another—may have the power to reinforce the most essential components of what it means to be both a human and a healer.
