The College of Allied Health invites all HSC Faculty, Staff and Students to attend a special brown bag lunch on February 7, 2014 from 12-1.
The Other End of the Stethoscope, presented by professional speaker and bestselling author, Marcus Engel.
As a college freshman, Marcus Engel was blinded and nearly killed after being struck by a drunk driver. Through two years of rehab, over 300 hours of reconstructive facial surgery and adaptation through a multitude of life changes, Marcus has witnessed the good, the bad and the profound in patient care. His keynote presentation, “The Other End of the Stethoscope” has been witnessed by health care professionals across the country, and his books are used in health profession, medical and nursing schools to teach the basic foundations of caregiving. Marcus is the co-creator of the “I’m Here Movement,” an effort to inspire health care professionals to understand the power they have by simply being present for patients. His message provides insight and strategies for excellent patient care.
Marcus holds a B.S. in sociology from Missouri State University (2000) and a M.S. in Narrative Medicine from Columbia University in New York City (2012.) He lives in Orlando, Florida with his wife, Marvelyne, and his Seeing Eye dog, Garrett. Marcus is, in his words, a social media junkie and loves to connect with health care professionals nationwide. All information on connecting can be discovered at www.MarcusEngel.com .
Please make plans to attend this once in a lifetime opportunity to hear Marcus speak!
