Description

Artist Wilma Siegel describes the subject: "Rita Charon is the director and founder of the Narrative Medicine of Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. I met her about 8 years ago and convinced her to include Wilmas studio as part of her department to bring the Visual Education into her vision of narrative medicine to teach the health professional to see the human whom they are treating in a more humanistic approach. She is world famous for her coining of the term Narrative Medicine. She is a thinking, feeling, kind humanistic physician."
