In this inaugural episode, Hank and Michael talk with Dr. Naomi Rosenberg. She is an emergency medicine physician at Temple University Hospital and assistant director of the Narrative Medicine program here at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine. We discuss her journey into medicine and why she chose emergency medicine. We also talk about an inevitable aspect of being a doctor -- delivering bad news. And we dive into a discussion of her amazing essay that for days was the best read story on the New York Times website, "How to Tell A Mother Her Child is Dead." We also discuss what Narrative Medicine means, and why she believes it is so valuable for physicians, patients, and students.
