A storytelling event held quarterly for people who work in healthcare. Storytellers come from across Central Texas to share the profound and inspiring experiences that have shaped their careers in the medical field. If you are a medical professional, please join us!
“But mostly I just sat with them quietly because I realized you don’t always have to say something. They told me later how much they appreciated the time I spent with them; I did not need to have magic words. I just had to be there.”
“In the end when you are going into surgery or sending your child into surgery, it doesn’t matter how routine, in the end all you have is faith, hope, and love. You have faith in the surgeon and hope it goes well, but love sees you through. Your patients feel that for you, they have love for you.”
