As One

I was doing the robot.

The robot doctor dance.

I was giving my shpiel at Exponential Medicine 2019.

Demonstrating how I had turned into a zombie robot going through the medical motions.

Fifty percent of doctors have turned into morally injured robots.

Barely getting through the rote roboticness of their day.

Mechanical menu medicine.

It’s time to bring the humanity back into medicine.

It’s time to bring the LOVE back into caring for humans with illness.

LOVE: Listen, Observe, Verbalize, Empathize.

It's time to rediscover the heart of medicine.

It starts with my own heart.

My human beating heart.

To connect from my heart with LOVE.

Listening from my heart.

Observing from my heart.

Verbalizing form my heart.

Empathizing from my heart.

Until two hearts beat as one.
