Join us in welcoming Dr. Laura Vater, MD, MPH, who is a hematology-oncology fellow, writer, and speaker. Dr. Vater will be presenting on Cultivating Compassion in Medicine and more about the Heme/Onc specialty for students who are interested in pursuing this fellowship.

Showing compassion is not only essential for the patients we serve, it is also protective for clinicians. In this talk, Dr. Vater will highlight why compassion matters, help us build skills to communicate with intention and clarity, and share how humanism and medicine are intertwined.
