Mayo Clinic presents: the Art and Science of Resilience panel

The IHR and the Center for Humanities in Medicine at Mayo Clinic in Arizona invite you to join us for the next event in our ongoing collaboration, the Imagining Health Project. This year, we have chosen to facilitate programs clustered around the theme of resilience - a concept that has helped build new questions about health for individuals, communities, and the physical environments we share.
It prompts us to address expansive questions:
Which qualities that promote resilience in individuals are innate, and which can be fostered in communities and networks of care?
What social determinants contribute to or inhibit the resilience of patients in healthcare settings?
How do narratives of illness or value systems influence resilience in individuals and communities?
In what ways does promoting resilience depend upon accepting vulnerability and limits to our mortality and autonomy, and how can we open dialogues about accepting those limits?
Bringing together scholars from ASU as well as researchers and medical staff from Mayo Clinic in Arizona, "The Art and Science of Resilience" will showcase innovative research and diverse perspectives on resilience and will be open to all ASU and Mayo Clinic faculty and staff.
