#THEFORGOODSESSIONS

​​​​​​​​​ communication for good 

According to American psychologist Rollo May, the power of communication lies in its potential to create community - that is, to understanding, intimacy and mutual valuing.
 
We live in a communication era, with mass media and improved techniques for the exchange of ideas readily available. Communication can now play a decisive role in today's new climate of social change.
 
Find out how communication is the currency for sustainable community building to take place. 

Join us at COMMUNICATE FOR GOOD and appreciate how good communication can generate even more good by creating inclusiveness and impact for those without a voice.

The Art of Medicine: What is Medical Humanities?

Medical Humanities is an emerging field of study that bridges science, art, and the humanities. It is an interdisciplinary examination into the way we think about the meaning of health and illness in our lives, particularly in this age of radical technological changes. By contemplating other dimensions healthcare like the doctor-patient relationship, illness narratives, and personal experiences of grief, Medical Humanities seeks to locate the "human" within healthcare.

Accompanying the Communicate For Health exhibition, this session will bring together a diverse panel of undergraduates, alumni, and NTU faculty members who have created and participated in projects that embody the Medical Humanities ethos. Join us for a discussion on what Medical Humanities is in practice, and how art and literature can be effective tools to engage the community in conversations about health and illness.
