Medical and Health Humanities website launches, founded by SOF Fellow Arden Hegele


Medical and Health Humanities was founded in 2017 by Arden Hegele, a literary scholar and Society of Fellows scholar, and Rishi Goyal, a physician.Their mission is to develop conversations among diverse people thinking about medical and humanistic ways of knowing. The newly launched website will cover anything that connects medicine with the humanities—critical reading, looking, listening.

Their interests are wide ranging: historical précis, new takes on books, investigations into cognition and imagination, and, of course, medical practice.
