Rachel Zook Memorial Speaker Series to debut during Nurses Week

Please plan to join us on Monday, May 6, 2024, from 6:30 to 8 p.m., for the first FREE event in the Rachel Zook Memorial Speaker Series. Marcus Engel will present "The Other End of the Stethoscope" at The Fawcett Center, 2400 Olentangy River Road, Columbus. Nurses can earn 1 CEU for attending this event!

As a college freshman, Marcus Engel was blinded and nearly killed after being struck by a drunk driver. Through two years of rehab, over 350 hours of reconstructive facial surgery and adaptation through a multitude of life changes, Marcus witnessed the good, the bad and the profound in patient care.

The Other End of the Stethoscope reminds healthcare professionals of the vital role they play in the healing process of patients. This keynote details the experience of a young patient during hospitalization, the care and compassion shown by health care professionals, and the importance of health care professionals to be safe, secure and appreciated in their role within this sacred field.

Participants will also come away with an understanding of each patient and co-worker’s individuality, unique differences, and appreciation for the role every health care employee plays in the healing of patients and their families. The patient and family experiences are absolutely vital in quality, competent health care.

There is no cost to attend, and continuing education credit is available. Click here to register.
