conversations with shem

Season 2!

More conversations are taking place, with medical literature icon Samuel Shem of “The House of God” fame at their helm. This time, Shem brings the guests, but continues to search for answers on how to put the human back into healthcare.

Good connection is mutual connection.

— Samuel Shem —
it started with a chance encounter

origins

Shem and I linked up in late 2020, in the midst of a pandemic. We were connected through a mutual contact, in that magical way social media has for bringing people together who would not have otherwise met. We instantaneously clicked, unified by the healthcare field we had dabbled in and our love of the arts. Yada, yada, yada, several vent sessions later, we had ourselves a plan. We would join forces on the project, and use each of our talents to spread the word.

That’s how Conversations with Shem was born.
