Leadership and Servitude 2/20/09

I was planning to write next about my first week as an Attending in the hospital, but I will have to procrastinate on that issue a bit. Today I participated in a workshop on health for the underserved and homeless as part of the STFM-NE/FMEC Conference. I listened as many health professionals and students presented and discussed their commitment to the most marginalized people in our society. We used the forum to troubleshoot practical problems but also to envision the kind of health care system that would support justice for patients, citizens, and providers.
