The Honors College is hosting Andrew Childress, assistant professor at Baylor College of Medicine, for The Medicine and the Arts Series on Tuesday, February 27, at 6 p.m. in Cougar Village, room N106. Childress serves as faculty in BCM’s Center for Medical Ethics and Health Policy, where he teaches medical humanities. He is also a clinical ethicist at Houston Methodist Hospital. His presentation, organized by Honors College faculty member Woods Nash, will be titled “When the Sublime Engine Fails: Medical and Metaphorical Representations of the Heart.”
Nash writes, “Dr. Childress is an enthusiastic teacher and scholar of medical humanities. He's helping to revolutionize medical education and practice in Houston by encouraging students, doctors, and other clinicians to pay careful attention to patients' stories—stories that should guide the kinds of care those clinicians provide.”
The event is free and open to the public. Medicine & Society students are particularly encouraged to attend.
