Western University of Health Sciences’ Gala Fundraiser Emphasizes Humanism and Caring

hat we can give to others a life force that we may have thought was just about lost to us, and when we do it comes back to us.”

Brutoco then directed his comments to all the young health care professionals in the room, whom he praised for being well-trained, motivated and talented. “But is your ability to care that will make you great,” he noted.

“Humanism is not limited to the health professions. It is everyone’s opportunity and privilege to serve others, to share positive moments and feelings, to be contributors in the community of mankind,” he said. “I have seen too many physicians and other professionals limited rather than expanded by their profession. A title does not place one above a patient. Education does not compensate for diminished warmth or kindness. A skill does not make up for atrophy of one’s soul. A specialty does not preclude from holistic and broad notions of wellness.

And please reject the notion that you are not supposed to get close to your patients, that you must have some distance so you don’t feel their pain. You’re supposed to feel what your patients feel. Do not be afraid of relating to your patients and their families, and above all do not be indifferent of suffering and of fear. That is where compassion comes from.

“Elie Wiesel is at his most powerful when he speaks about non-involvement in human suffering. ‘The opposite of love is not hate. It is indifference. To remain silent and indifferent is the greatest sin of all,’ ” Brutoco added. “So I can sum up my encouragement to you in a single word: care. You will find yourself going above and beyond for your patients in ways you cannot now imagine. It will lead to better mind and body health for your patients, and much more fulfillment for you.”

“I think we've seen the best example of the art of caring. I’m indebted to Dr. Brutoco for sharing his experiences with us,” said WesternU President Philip Pumerantz, PhD. “For the audience here, let me
