The New York University Bookstore will host Dr. Danielle Ofri, author of What Doctors Feel: How Emotions Affect the Practice of Medicine, on Tues., Sept. 24, 6 to 7:30 p.m., at the Bookstore’s 726 Broadway location (between Astor Place and Washington Place).

The event is free and open to the public. Admission is on a first-come, first-served basis. Space is limited. For more information, call 212.998.4667 or go to www.bookstores.nyu.edu. Subways: N, R (8th Street); 6 (Astor Place).

The stories in Ofri’s book reveal that emotions have a distinct effect on how doctors care for their patients. For both clinicians and patients, she finds, understanding what doctors feel can make all the difference in giving and getting the best medical care—curing as well as healing.

Ofri, MD, PhD, is an associate professor of medicine at NYU School of Medicine and a physician at Bellevue Hospital. She is the author of Singular Intimacies: Becoming a Doctor at Bellevue, Incidental Findings: Lessons from My Patients in the Art of Medicine, and Medicine in Translation: Journeys with My Patients. Ofri is a regular contributor to the New York Times’ “Well” blog as well as to its “Science Times” section.
