We have a special guest coming this Sunday, April 7th!
Dr. Brian Goldman is the author of West Hill's 2019 Book Study,
"THE POWER OF KINDNESS:
Why Empathy is essential in Everyday Life"   

We are SO privileged to have him come and share his wisdom and experience with us; please pass this along and invite your friends who enjoy hearing him on CBC's 'White Coat, Black Art'!

Brian Goldman, MD, is a highly regarded emergency physician at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto.  He is also the host of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s award-winning radio show “White Coat, Black Art”, where he takes listeners behind the scenes of hospitals and doctor’s offices. 

His TEDtalk – “Doctors Make Mistakes. Can We Talk About That?” has been watched by close to a million viewers, and has been featured in The Huffington Post and NPRs TED Radio Hour.

He is the author of the bestselling book The Night Shift:  Real Life in the ER, which takes readers through giddying heights and crashing lows as Goldman works through a typical night shift in one of Canada’s busiest ERs.  He is also the author of  The Secret Language of Doctors – published by Harper Collins in 2014 – which takes a biting look at medical slang.

In his latest book, The Power of Kindness, Goldman leaves the comfortable, familiar surroundings of the hospital in search of his own lost compassion.
