Dr. Weaver delivers inspirational talk at American Medical Association Annual Meeting

September 11, 2014

Why Does Medicine Still Inspire? is the title of a talk delivered by Wm. Lynn Weaver, MD, FACS, Ross University School of Medicine’s (RUSM) Senior Associate Dean, Dominica Campus, at the American Medical Association’s Annual Meeting on June 6, 2014, in Chicago.

According to the AMA website, "AMA’s Annual Meeting unites physicians to share their wisdom and insights into what has inspired them throughout their career, impactful moments with patients and their role of physician leadership in furthering health care."

Dr. Weaver related that, "What I want to share with you is not a great success story, not a miracle of modern medicine and technology, and not a miracle of divine intervention. In fact when this story first happened, I felt that I had failed."
