Celia Engel Bandman’s discussion of her medical humanist work, “A Medical Humanist Says Goodbye,” which originally appeared in the July 9, 2008 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), was cited by Dr. John Launer in the October 2008 issue of the London-based Postgraduate Medical Journal. In his article, “Learning Humanity,” Launer writes extensively about the medical humanist’s role in bridging the language of medicine and the patient’s lived experience of illness, warning that “Medicine can become locked within its own words.”
