August 2020


Every Pixel Tells a Story, Don't It? Staying Human in a Digital World
Wednesday, August 19 | 6 p.m. (EDT)

Even before the pandemic, medicine was becoming increasingly impersonal. Electronic Medical Records, remote telehealth portals, and now even personal protective equipment rob all of us of the joy of interacting with others in the same way. Dr. Daniel J. Waters '82, facilitated by Dr. Samantha Plasner '02, discusses how to stay connected in a disconnected, prophylactically protected world and preserve what Bruce Springsteen called "The Human Touch."

Dr. Waters practiced open-heart surgery for thirty years and was Director of Medical Education for two decades. Since retirement he is now a full-time author/novelist and Assistant Professor at Des Moines University College of Osteopathic Medicine teaching Medical Humanities. Dr. Waters also writes for Doximity.com and is a contributor to other digital platforms for health professionals.
