The Doctors Are In: Narrative Medicine with Dr.'s Sneha Mantri & Deborah Jenson

What is narrative medicine, and how does it transform clinical and literary spaces? Duke Neurologist and narrative medicine specialist Sneha Mantri dialogues with Health Humanities Lab Co-Director and Professor of Romance Studies Deborah Jenson about her training in narrative medicine, how it enters her practice with patients living with Parkinson disease and other movement disorders, and how she envisions the future of the field.

The "Doctors Are In" series will bring together a humanities faculty member and a health care provider to engage in conversation on mutual interests, different professional practices and frames for similar concerns. Sponsored by the Health Humanities Lab at Duke University's John Hope Franklin Humanities Institute (FHI).
