The Schwartz Center video gallery provides a close-up view of the events, programs and people that are central to our work. Take a closer look at our Compassion in Action Healthcare Conference, watch and listen to speakers at The Annual Kenneth B. Schwartz Compassionate Healthcare Dinner, meet our National Compassionate Caregiver of the Year (NCCY) Award finalists, and see more of all that we do to put compassion at the heart of healthcare.
Attendees engaged with colleagues from across the globe and learned about cutting-edge programs, strategies and tools to create and sustain cultures of compassion. They experienced immersive sessions that left them feeling inspired, equipped with knowledge and skills, and supported by new partners.
In her role as the medical director for the 3East Girls Intensive and Step-Down Programs at McLean Hospital, Sophia L. Maurasse, MD, brings to her work the unique combination of highly skilled clinical expertise, an understanding of the full range of human behavior and an extraordinary capacity for compassion.
This year’s six National Compassionate Caregiver of the Year Award finalists share their personal stories of compassionate care, best practices, and their vision for the future of healthcare. The panel was moderated by Beth Lown, MD, the Schwartz Center’s Chief Medical Officer.
