We’re not done collaborating yet! We are joining with Sanford Health’s Embrace Cancer Survivorship Program and The UND School of Medicine and Health Sciences to present Wit in Grand Forks. The play will have two special performances at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. in Grand Forks on Thursday, Oct. 30 at The Reed Keller Auditorium in the UND School of Medicine and Health Sciences, 501 N. Columbia Road.
The 3 p.m. performance is mandatory for first-year, UND medical students and will be open to other health science students, residents and faculty on a first-come, first-serve basis. Following the performance, a panel discussion comprised of physicians and stage 4 female cancer patients will be held.
“Understanding what your patients are going through and being able to empathize with those emotions is so vital to providing the best care,” said Medical Director of Embrace Shelby Terstriep, M.D. “This play should help providers better understand the emotions and prepare them for engagement with their patients in the future.”
At 7 p.m., there will be a free performance for the public and the university community at large, also at the Reed Keller Auditorium.
The UND School of Medicine and Health Sciences Interprofessional Education program presents these performances as part of a medical humanities series. These performances are supported in part through a Community Innovation Grant from the Bush Foundation and special funding from the Dakota Medical Foundation.
