Medical Innovation in Start-Up Nation: Lessons for Any Professional Community Hungering for New Ideas

Description:
Large organizational and professional structures often are resistant to change. This can apply to the corporate infrastructures, financial institutions, government, NGO's, and religious communal organizations. Healthcare is an example of a dynamic professional community with incredible challenges and strong resistance to change. Personal and professional experiences both in interventional radiology and in Israel serve as examples for fostering a culture of innovative thinking to kickstart an ecosystem and shift it from the brink to a restorative, thriving, and meaningful calling to serve.

The Doctor Visit Demystified: What your doctor wishes you knew to make the most of your medical visit

Description:

Research shows that most patients recall only 50% of what their doctor told them at a visit - AND that half of what we remember is inaccurate! Why is this so hard? It turns out doctors are trained to think about medical problems very differently than their patients. This workshop will examine some of those differences to help you get them most out of your next medical encounter. Dr Greenwald’s colleague, Lisa Bernstein, MD will share the billing at this evening’s very special program. Dr. Bernstein is an Associate Professor at the Emory University School of Medicine in the Dept. of Medicine and Geriatrics, and is a three-time winner of the Emory School of Medicine Dean’s Teaching Award.
