Health Humanities Grand Rounds with Ben Kaplan
“I Know Me: Using Photovoice to Explore the Lives of Complex Care Patients”
This talk will serve as an introduction to Ben’s ongoing research project, I Know Me: Using Photovoice to Explore the Lives of Complex Care Patients. Inspired by Atul Gawande’s “The Host Spotters” (The New Yorker, 2011), “I Know Me” utilizes the Photovoice technique to investigate the daily lives of UNC’s complex care patients from their own perspective. What results is a powerful fusion of clinical research, art, and advocacy that places patient voices where they belong: front and center.
Ben Kaplan is a member of the UNC School of Medicine’s class of 2020. While studying English at Columbia University, Ben developed a strong interest in narrative medicine, which ultimately inspired him to pursue a medical career. Since arriving at UNC, Ben has continued to develop a multi-disciplinary, holistic approach to healthcare, which takes into account patients’ personal narratives as well as the socioeconomic and environmental factors that shape their everyday lives.
