  • A primary care doctor, helping a distressed and emotionally overwhelmed patient decide whether to accept available support at a psychiatric facility.
  • A room-full of doctors, nurses, social workers, and other health providers, discussing a moving poem about a patient’s hospital experience.
  • A doctor accompanying an elderly man, as they circled by me several times, gathering information about his reactions to walking.
  • That same doctor informing me that my foot pain was tendon-related, and that it would heal in a week, with Aleve, ice, and this other support I remember witnessing in my childhood:
