Event description

Description

Hershey Area - All Things Diversity is a free series of programs coordinated by Derry Township, The Hershey Story -The Museum on Chocolate Avenue, Derry Township School District, The Hershey Company, Penn State Health, and Hershey Entertainment & Resorts. Our September session will feature Dr. Paul Haidet who will present "The Importance of Stories in Understanding Each Other."

Stories are powerful, and shape our perspectives of each other. The problem is when we have only one story to represent a person or a people. In this session, we will use an example from medicine to dig into stories and their effects on our thinking and actions toward each other.

Paul Haidet is a general internist, health-services researcher, educator, husband, father, and lover of jazz music. He received his undergraduate and medical degrees from Penn State University, and completed a residency in internal medicine at the Milton S Hershey Medical Center and Penn State University Hospital. He inaugurated the role of Director of Medical Education Research and serves as Professor of Medicine, Humanities, and Public Health Sciences at the Penn State College of Medicine. Dr. Haidet has published widely on a variety of topics related to teaching, communication, and the humanistic care of patients, and he has won a number of regional, national, and international awards for his work. His current interest is in the improvisational aspects of patient-physician communication, and he is using his lifelong interest in jazz to create new educational methods and models to foster advanced communication skills among physicians at multiple levels.
