Speaker Series

Funded by a BRIDGE grant from Rice University, collaborators Keisha Ray, PhD (McGovern Center), and Kirsten Ostherr, PhD, MPH (Rice University), will welcome guests for a series of talks about the medical humanities. The virtual series launched Fall 2022.

The series’ first speaker was Alyssa Burgart, MD, MA, FACP, a Clinical Associate Professor of Pediatric Anesthesiology at the Stanford University School of Medicine who has a joint appointment in the Stanford Center for Biomedical Ethics. Her talk was, “Becoming a Social Physician: Embracing Modern Medical Humanities,” which can be streamed below or on the McGovern Center’s YouTube.
