Before the King lecture
Nuland, Raffin, Shortlife Sherwin B. Nuland, right, bestselling author and clinical professor of surgery at Yale, talks with Thomas A. Raffin, professor of medicine and co-director of the Stanford Center for Biomedical Ethics, left, and Edward H. Shortliffe, associate dean for information resources technology, before delivering the seventh annual Jonathan J. King Lecture to a packed audience in Fairchild Auditorium Oct. 7. Nuland told his audience including many physicians to return to their emotional roots and "empathize - look at the world through your patient's eyes." The King Lecture series was founded by friends and family of Jonathan King, a Palo Alto computer scientist who, prior to his death in 1991, defined key messages he hoped caregivers would keep in mind as they serve dying patients.
