Medical Humanities podcasts

The journal Literature & Medicine held a conference at the end of last year called 'Caring for the Caregiver'. Several of the sessions have been made available as mp3 downloads. Speakers include Rita Charon and the physician-poet Rafael Campo. This is a wonderful resource!
