We are delighted to share a very special Gold Human InSight Webinar featuring Emmy Award-winning actor Alan Alda and bestselling author Dr. Jillian Horton in a thought-provoking conversation.
Both leaders have been great advocates of humanism in healthcare. Dr. Jillian Horton is the author of We Are All Perfectly Fine, a bestselling memoir about one physician’s path through burnout to well-being, in large part through her work with Mindful Practice, an organization that collaborates with the Gold Foundation. A Canadian, she is the 2020 recipient of the prestigious Humanism in Healthcare Award. Dr. Horton has written powerfully about how Alan Alda’s character in the TV series M*A*S*H has influenced her path as a physician.
Alan Alda is an American actor, comedian and author and six-time Emmy Award and Golden Globe Award winner. He has a deep interest in science and served as a long-time host of Scientific American Frontiers. He founded Stony Brook University’s Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science, which has been featured in several Gold Human InSight Webinars. In 2018, Alan Alda was awarded the Gold Foundation’s National Humanism in Medicine Medal.
This conversation was also featured on Alan Alda’s podcast “Clear & Vivid.” Listen here.
The Gold Human InSight Webinars are virtual innovative sessions that the Gold Foundation has hosted with its wonderful partners in humanism. The 2020-2021 theme is “Care, Compassion, and Collaboration during the Dual Pandemic.” If you are interested in collaborating with the Gold Foundation on a webinar, please contact Host Pia Pyne Miller, MPH, Senior Director for Strategy and Business Development, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
