“Judith Hannan takes us with her on her journey through the valley of the shadow of death and then back to the sunshine of life. Judith’s willingness to share intimate feelings and to discuss difficult moments is a gift that will help so many, as it has already helped me, to deal with the past as well as the future.” Alan M. Dershowitz

Promoting the Patient’s Voice
By understanding the patient’s lived experience with illness, suffering and even death a doctor is more able to connect with and treat them as a fellow human being. The patient narrative can come through a variety of paths, such as patient panels, documentary films, literature, visual arts, and more. The Arnold P. Gold Foundation supports projects that help to deepen understanding and empathy for the patient experience, bringing critical insights to practitioners and medical trainees – and the patient public, too.
At CavanKerry Press, we firmly believe in making fine literature available to everyone. If you need accommodations to access any of our events or readings, please email Dimitri Reyes, Marketing & Communications Director, at least two weeks in advance in order for us to ensure we have ample time to make arrangements with necessary accessibility services.
