Doctors As Storytellers

Dr. Louise Aronson talks about working from both sides of her brain.

There's a real trend in medicine toward good story-telling. 

A number of medical school programs and practitioners advocate creative writing skills for MDs and other health care workers. 

Because each patient and illness has a story. 

Geriatrician Louise Aronson holds an M.D. and an M.F.A. in writing. 

She combines the skill sets in her book of stories A History of the Present Illness.
