Book Cover for Committed by Dr. Adam Stern

Committing and Moving Forward No Matter What

October 14, 2021 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am CDT

Dr. Adam Stern, psychiatrist at Harvard Medical School and author of the new book CommittedDispatches from a Psychiatrist in Training, will be sharing his story and the lessons he has learned in the years since graduating from medical school. Topics will range from the challenges he faced during training – from impostor syndrome to grief and eventually finding love and human connection – to his more recent years living with Stage 4 cancer as a young father and husband in his 30s. The focus of the talk will be on what we can learn from the challenges our lives present to us, and how we can commit to moving forward no matter what in a way that aligns with our values.
