Rana Awdish, M.D.
Medical Director of Care Experience at Henry Ford Health System
Director of the Pulmonary Hypertension Program at Henry Ford Hospital
In Shock

Patient-centered care is the buzzword we’ve all heard and the standard we all strive for. But what does it really mean for the patient? After suffering a sudden critical illness, Dr. Awdish found herself on the receiving end of patient-centered care—and was shocked by what she discovered. Now, she’s here to talk about how her experience as both patient and doctor shaped the way she treats her patients and present us with a new paradigm for embracing the emotional bond between provider and patient.

Plus! Registered attendees can receive a copy of Dr. Awdish’s NEW critically acclaimed memoir, In Shock.
