In response to the ongoing pandemic, we decided that the health of our participants remains the priority, and we are hosting a virtual event again this year.
We are pleased to offer this four-day Virtual Short Course
Too Much Grief: The Humanities as Intervention
June 26-29, 2022
In this free, four-day virtual short course, students will apply approaches from the humanities and social sciences to examine the layers of loss and grief facing all of us amid a global pandemic, Ukraine war suffering, gun violence, racism, climate change, inequality, political tribalism, and personal losses.
Participants will learn from leaders in clinical medicine, global health, and faculty from the humanities and will work in mentored small groups to distill key ideas and lessons. Because of this design, attendance at all sessions is expected.
The short course will focus on three themes:
- Day 1: How We Die in Modern Medicine
- Day 2: Learning to Manage Despair from Global Health and History
- Day 3: Creating Healing Spaces to Lessen Personal Suffering
Schedule of Events:
- Sunday, June 26, 6:00-8:00 p.m. EDT: Orientation
- Monday, June 27-Wednesday, June 29 (two sessions each day):
- 12:00-2:00 p.m. EDT
- 6:00-8:00 p.m. EDT
Who should apply?
This unique learning opportunity is designed specifically for undergraduate and graduate students (or recent graduates) pursuing careers in healthcare as clinical providers, public health practitioners, researchers, or advocates.
