Conversations with… Annie Brewster, M.D. (5:30-7 P.M.)
Wednesday, March 27, 2019, 5:30 PM until 7:00 PM
King's Chapel Parish House
64 Beacon St
Annie Brewster is an assistant professor at Harvard Medical School and a practicing Internist at MGH. She is also a patient, diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2001. Like many doctors, her love of human connection drew her to practice medicine. Her experiences with the medical profession, as both patient and doctor, have convinced her that today’s medical system, focused more on efficiency and scientific mastery than on relationships, often overlooks what is most important: the stories of people’s lives. In 2010, motivated by her belief in the power of stories to improve health, Annie started recording patient narratives, later founding the Health Story Collaborative, a nonprofit dedicated to empowering individuals and communities through storytelling. Meet at King’s Chapel Parish House, 64 Beacon Street, at 5:30 p.m. for hors d’oeuvres; program begins at 6 p.m. BHV/BHS members: Free. Guests: $20.
