    Cultivating Compassion with Critical Care Expert, Dr. Rana Awdish - Condensed Version

    Cultivating Compassion with Critical Care Expert, Dr. Rana Awdish - Condensed Version

    For part nine of our No Barriers Alchemy Series host Dave Shurna and guest host, Tom Lillig, interview Dr. Rana Awdish, a critical care physician operating on the front lines during COVID-19 at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, MI. Dr. Awdish’s own serious illness in 2008 has informed her belief in the power of compassion, sacred listening, and community. As medical director of the Care Experience for the Henry Ford Healthcare System, she is training staff to practice empathy in critical care.

    Her book, In Shock, a memoir based on her own critical illness was described in A New York Times book review as “the one I wish we were given our first year of medical school, alongside our white coats and stethoscopes.”

    Thinking Through Uncertainty with Neuroscientist, Beau Lotto - Expanded Version

    Thinking Through Uncertainty with Neuroscientist, Beau Lotto - Expanded Version

    As part 8 of our Alchemy Series (sponsored by Wells Fargo and Prudential) we speak with Dr. Beau Lotto, a neuroscientist and world-renowned expert in perception. His research explores the ways in which we experience the world through our own versions of reality. As Beau puts it, "the brain never sees the world as it actually is, only the world that is useful to see." Beau is a three-time main stage TED speaker and is the founder of the world’s first neuro-design studio, Lab of Misfits. Part lab, part creative studio, Lab of Misfits takes a disruptive approach to research, partnering with brands to blend science, art, and performance to explore pivotal principles in current culture.
