Next Wednesday, Stanford's annual Medicine and the Muse symposium will bring together medical student art, music, photography and literature in a series of performances and exhibits. During the event, Khaled Hosseini, MD, bestselling author of The Kite Runner, A Thousand Splendid Suns and And the Mountains Echoed, will join Paul Costello, chief communications officer for the School of Medicine, in conversation. He will also be available for book signing.
This year's Medicine and the Muse theme is "Renewal," informed by Hosseini's writing. The event "is an opportunity for medical students to share their artistic talents, and to hear from a physician who has followed his muse to success in writing,” said Grace Xiong, a member of the medical student committee organizing the event.
Medicine and the Muse takes place April 16, from 5:30-8:30 PM in Berg Hall of the Li Ka Shing Center for Learning and Knowledge on the Stanford campus. The event is free and open to the public, but RSVPs are requested. To RSVP, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 650-725-3448.
