“Notes from a Healer” — By the Numbers

Numbers are the words of mathematics; mathematics is the language of science; science forms the basis of modern medical practice. Yet sometimes we can get caught up in the numbers to the extent that they cloud our outlook of the larger picture. We calculate the milligrams of medication, but fail to look at the patient.

My latest installment of Notes from a HealerBy the Numbers — is now online, newly published in the Yale Journal for Humanities in Medicine.

The Yale Journal for Humanities in Medicine is an online clearinghouse for manuscripts dealing with the humanities and medicine. Interested readers can access a list of editorial board members and regular contributors here.
