Role Roller Coasters

August 19, 2020


People on a healthcare team often inhabit multiple roles, both professional and personal. One of these roles may be mother, father, parent. How does being a parent, or an adult child caregiving for a parent, impact us as patients, doctors, nurses, and other members of a healthcare team as we navigate the experience of providing and receiving care? Join Drs. Mary Pan and Elizabeth Lahti to read, write, and discuss what it means to balance these different roles. All are welcome.

Mary Pan, MD, is a family medicine physician and writer with training in global health and narrative medicine. When not writing or staving off wanderlust, she can be found jogging in the rain. She lives in Seattle with her husband and three young children.
