Conversations With...Michael Goldberg (5:30-7 p.m.)
Monday, October 16, 2017, 5:30 PM until 7:00 PM
King's Chapel Parish House
64 Beacon Street
Each of us has an image of a diseased person: How they look; how they function; what is damaged; and what needs to be fixed. Yet, the variation in physical appearance and intellectual performance is vast. In this conversation with Michael Goldberg, M.D., Scholar-in-Residence at the Schwartz Center for Compassionate Healthcare, we will explore that grey zone between disease and diversity. We will discuss how art, music, literature and theatre have influenced our concept of normal. With new gene technology available to the public, how will our children and grandchildren approach human variation: As a disease needing to be cured, or as part of the diversity spectrum? Meet at King’s Chapel Parish House, 64 Beacon Street, at 5:30 p.m. for light hors d’oeuvres and wine; program begins at 6 p.m. BHV/BHS members: Free. Guests of members and prospective members: $20.
