Our Featured presenter: Physician Poet Rafael Campo
We’re excited to announce our featured presenter for the 2017 Examined Life Conference, physician poet Rafael Campo!
Dr. Campo currently teaches and practices general internal medicine at Harvard Medical School and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, where his medical practice serves mostly Latinos, gay/lesbian/bisexual/transgendered people, and people with HIV infection. He is also on the faculty of the Lesley University Creative Writing MFA program.
Dr. Campo’s work has received multiple awards, including The Other Man Was Me (Arte Público Press, Houston, 1994), which won the 1993 National Poetry Series Award, and he has also been featured on the National Endowment for the Arts website and on National Public Radio. His list of accomplishments as a poet and physician are too numerous to mention here, but please visit his website to find all the information you might desire.
We are incredibly fortunate to have him as our featured presenter and his presence ensures that this year’s conference will reach new heights and offer a fantastic opportunity to continue our exploration of the many places where art and medicine meet. We hope you’ll join us.
Our call for presenters is now open until May 15, 2017. Please send your proposals. Or join us as a guest–look for registration to open in the coming weeks.
