For 20 years, Dr. Bill Thomas, a Harvard-trained geriatrician, has worked to improve the way nursing home care is delivered. He has encouraged caregivers to treat “residents” as people who need care, not just patients who need treatment.
Episode 008 takes us through part 2 of Nate’s journey through Africa with Samite and Musicians for Word Harmony. We get to hear about the many different villages, communities, and schools that Nate and Samite visited. Nate describes the cultural differences of the communities he visited in Africa and how they are different (or the same) as those in the United States. Dr. Bill helps us decode Nate’s story and gives us great insight into the value of their travels and the work being done by so many people around the world.
As the first part of a 2 part series, Nate and Bill discuss Nate and Samite’s transformative trip to Africa. Tune in and discover what Nate learned about love, partnership and community from his long-awaited first trip to Africa.
This week on the #AskDrBill show Nate and Bill discuss the power of language in our culture. How do words alter our pre-conceived notions of ourselves and the people around us?
