How can a dose of empathy help many patients as much as a pill?

Join Oxford University Primary Care’s Dr. Jeremy Howick on January 26th for SPPH Grand Rounds as he discusses the randomized trial evidence behind how empathic and positive messaging can benefit patients as much as drugs for most mild pain, depression, and anxiety, as presented in his new book Doctor You.

Then, SPPH Assistant Professor Eva Oberle will discuss her research into how social and emotional learning contributes to happy, healthy kids.’
