For more than 30 years, Dr. Brian Goldman has been an active participant and keen observer of the culture of modern medicine. With a new book about empathy, he joins Wordfest for an on-stage interview and audience Q&A, followed by a book signing.

As a veteran emergency room physician and host of the award-winning CBC Radio show White Coat, Black Art, Goldman always believed that caring came naturally to physicians. But time, stress, errors, and heavy expectations left him wondering if he might not be the same caring doctor he thought he was at the beginning of his career. The Power of Kindness searches out some of the most empathetic people alive to hear their stories and learn their secrets.

Wordfest presents Dr. Brian Goldman at 7:00pm on May 28, 2018 at the John Dutton Theatre, Calgary Public Library (616 Macleod Tr. SE).
