Public Lecture by Prof. Gary Hammer "Leadership in Medicine and Science"
On February 2, at 17:00, Professor Gary Hammer, Director of the Endocrine Oncology Program at the University of Michigan, and former President of the Endocrine Society (Detroit, USA), will hold a public lecture on "Leadership in Medicine and Science" in Hall G 106.
A motivational and inspiring lecture based on the personal experience and career path of Professor Gary Hammer himself in science and medicine. It will be about how awareness of one's own vulnerability can be a source of inspiration to change the world for the better. How one can understand the concept of being here and now. Living in presence, using time and space to develop oneself, inspire others and change the environment and the world around us for a better place. The conversation will also touch the subject of the relationship between the doctor and the patient, those connections, trust, and mutual understanding that are necessary for the formation and development of an ideal doctor-patient relationship in the long term.
