Event Description

Compelling new research shows that health care is in the midst of a compassion crisis. But the pivotal question is this: Does compassion really matter?

Join us for this installment of the annual Bayada Lecture Series, sponsored by Bayada Home Health Care, featuring Stephen Trzeciak, MD, MPH, physician scientist and co-other of the book “Compassionomics: The Revolutionary Scientific Evidence That Caring Makes a Difference.” Trzeciak will explore eye-opening data reflecting that compassion could be a wonder drug for the 21st Century.

You will see compelling evidence that:

  • Compassion has vast benefits for patients across a wide variety of conditions
  • Missed opportunities for compassion can have devastating health effects
  • Compassion can help reverse the cost crisis in health care
  • Compassion can be an antidote for burnout among health care providers
  • Forty seconds of compassion can save a life

Hors d’oeuvres and desserts will be served.
