CEO Toby Cosgrove, MD, shared this video, titled “Empathy,” with the Cleveland Clinic staff during his 2013 State of the Clinic address on Feb. 27, 2013. Without words it is really powerful and should inspire all!

I especially like the way this video presents the context of both patients and staff and it reminds me of the project underway at Adventures in Caring titled Oxygen for the Caregiver… which will be out soon!  Stay tuned for a release date!
