"I traced in my mind our timeline of visits every other month, as I got to know Lorraine and the rest of her family. We celebrated many triumphs and mourned countless setbacks together, relating to her health and to her kids." Physician Emily Gordon reflects on her memories of one patient, Lorraine, who taught her about the role family plays in healing and in health. Her essay was published in the Teaching and Learning Moments column in the November 2018 issue of Academic Medicine. Read the essay at academicmedicine.org.
