Getting the most out of your visit with your doctor
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Good communication lies at the foundation of the patient-doctor relationship and is vitally important for good health outcomes. And yet, the ever-increasing pressure on physicians to do more in less time undercuts the quality of this communication, putting patients at risk.

In his talk, Dennis Rosen, M.D., author of Vital Conversations: Improving Communication Between Doctors and Patients, will discuss some of the reasons why this communication often founders and will offer concrete suggestions on how you can get the most out of visits with your doctors.

Dennis Rosen, M.D. is a pediatric pulmonologist at Boston Children's Hospital and Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at Harvard Medical School.

Dr. Rosen writes regularly for the medical press as well as for The New York Times, The Boston Globe, and The Pacific Standard. His book, Vital Conversations: Improving Communication Between Doctors And Patients was published in 2014 by Columbia University Press. His website, dennisrosenmd.com, is devoted to improving the quality of communication within our medical system to achieve better results, lower costs, and greater satisfaction for all involved. He lives in Newton with his wife and three children.

HUMAN TRAFFICKING IN THE 21ST CENTURY

The U.S. and the international community have adopted various treaties and laws to prevent trafficking, but to truly understand and combat the issue, they must find the root causes enabling traffickers to exploit millions of victims.

Human trafficking represents a multibillion in international trade per annum and continues to be one of the fastest growing criminal industries. While undeniably a global phenomenon, the U.S., as one of the world’s leading human trafficking importers, bears a special responsibility to combat this practice. The U.S. and the international community have adopted various treaties and laws to prevent trafficking, but to truly understand and combat the issue, they must find the root causes enabling traffickers to exploit millions of victims.

BRAZIL'S METAMORPHOSIS

Some of Brazil’s trickiest problems — deep divisions over how to tackle serious income inequality, weak civic institutions and poor regional leadership — have held it back.

Brazil — it’s the “B” in the acronym BRICS, five emerging economies once seen as soon-to-be superpowers. After economic troubles in the 1990s, Brazil has risen to new global prominence — it’s drawing in more investment, working on global issues ranging from climate change to peacekeeping, and even hosting the 2016 Olympics. But some of Brazil’s trickiest problems — deep divisions over how to tackle serious income inequality, weak civic institutions and poor regional leadership — have held it back.

A man discovers it's harder to scandalize his family than he expected in this comedy.  Vincenzo has devoted most of his life to building up the successful pasta company founded by his grandfather, and now that he's getting older he plans to hand over the business to his sons, Antonio and Tommaso. While Antonio has been working at Vincenzo's side for years, his brother has been living in Rome with his boyfriend.  Tommaso's parents don't know that he's gay and uninterested in the family business.  When Vincenzo wants a family meeting to discuss his future role, Tommaso comes up with a plan -- he'll tell his parents that he's gay, and they'll be so shocked they'll hand the reigns over to Antonio….or so he thinks.  The film received its North American premiere at the 2010 Tribeca Film Festival.  (110 minutes)

Paris Letters by Janice MacLeod
 “How much money does it take to quit your job?”  Exhausted and on the verge of burnout, 
 Janice MacLeod poses this question to herself as she doodles on a notepad at her desk.
 Surprisingly, the answer isn't as daunting as she expected. With a little math and a lot of
 determination, Janice cuts back, saves up, and buys herself two years of freedom in Europe.

A Trip to the Beach:  Living on Island time in the Caribbean
by Melinda Blanchard
This is the story of a trip to the beach that never ends. It's about a husband and wife who escape civilization to build a small restaurant on an island paradise -- and discover that even paradise has its pitfalls. It's a story filled with calamities and comedy, culinary disasters and triumphs, and indelible portraits of people who live and work on a sliver of beauty set in the Caribbean Sea. It's about the maddening, exhausting, outlandish complications of trying to live the simple life -- and the joy that comes when you somehow pull it off.

Kinky Gazpacho:  Life, Love & Spain by Lori L. Tharps
Magazine writer and editor Lori Tharps was born and raised in the comfortable but mostly White suburbs of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where she was often the only person of color in her neighborhood. At an early age, Lori decided that her destiny would be discovered in Spain. She didn't know anyone from Spain, had never visited the country, and hardly spoke the language. Still, she never faltered in her plans to go.  Arriving in the country as an optimistic college student, however, Lori soon discovers Spain's particular attitude toward Blackness.

Sideways on a Scooter:  Life and Love in India by Miranda Kennedy
When twenty-something reporter Miranda Kennedy leaves her job in New York City and travels to India with no employment prospects, she longs to immerse herself in the turmoil and excitement of a rapidly developing country. What she quickly learns in Delhi are early signs that life is less Westernized than she’d thought.  Living in Delhi for more than five years, and finding a city pulsing with possibility and hope, Kennedy experiences friendships, love affairs, and losses that open a window onto the opaque world of Indian politics and culture—and alter her own attitudes about everything from food and clothes to marriage and family.
