Dr. Tetteh and Spoken Word artists from The Poet Life will share stories about the healing power of art and compassion, illuminating the human condition through compelling stories and music to positively change the world. Experience the Art of Human Care.
The Art of Human Care combines the healing power of art and compassion, illuminates the human condition through compelling stories, and aims to positively change the world. Come experience the power of Art, Healing, and Tech in this unforgettable event at the premier THEARC venue and meet the author, Dr. Hassan Tetteh. During this intimate and informative event, Dr. Tetteh will read excerpts from his book and Spoken Word artists from The Poet Life will perform. The Poet Life is an organization that contracts poets to facilitate workshops, produce content and perform spoken word.
Hosted by Guy Lambert, news director at WPGC 95.5 FM, this event will also serve as a fundraiser. All of the proceeds from the book sales and all donations will go to Miriam's Kitchen, a nonprofit organization dedicated to working on chronic homelessness in Washington, D.C. A few of Miriam's Kitchen’s artists and advocates will also share their artistic creations at the event.
In his book, Dr. Tetteh narrates his experiences as a patient whose life was saved as well as his experiences as a physician who saves lives himself. “The Art of Human Care” combines the healing power of art and compassion, and personifies the human condition through compelling stories. Readers will be inspired not only to make a difference but to change the world, according to Dr. Tetteh.
Dr. Hassan Tetteh is a graduate of the MPA program at the Harvard Kennedy School, a U.S. Navy captain and associate professor of surgery at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, and an adjunct faculty member at Howard University College of Medicine and the University of Maryland Medical Center. He is also a board member of Miriam's Kitchen.
This event is free. However, with a $25.00 donation, guests will receive a signed copy of “The Art of Human Care,” Tetteh’s other book, “Gifts of the Heart,” and a reserved seat. They will also have the satisfaction of knowing their donation will help neighbors experiencing homelessness — from enjoying a fresh delicious meal to providing space for individuals to express themselves through art, to obtain a safe place to call home.
