Pulse: Dance in Three Movements

Pulse: Voices from the Heart of Medicine is a weekly online, edited newsletter dedicated to, “Revealing the personal side of health care through stories, poems and images.” Each Friday, Pulse editors Paul Gross and Diane Guernsey feature a new story about the human side of the medicine.

Pulse aims to tell the story of health care through the personal experiences of those who live it–patients, health professionals, students and caregivers. At a time when medicine is often criticized for being cold and oblivious, Pulse highlights the human and vulnerable face of medicine in order to promote the humanistic practice of medicine and encourage advocacy for a compassionate system of health care for all.

This week’s feature story in Pulse is by…me! Not only is it a thrill to have had my work selected, the opportunity to work with an editor was very rewarding. You can enjoy my story here.

It’s a great little publication. I encourage you to subscribe on the Pulse website (pulsevoices.org). Subscriptions are free, and you can unsubscribe at any time if you decide you no longer want to receive the weekly email.
