Dr. Freeman brings kindness to medicine

Dr. Jerome Freeman, professor and chair of the Department of Neurosciences at the University of South Dakota Sanford School of Medicine, is the author of Bringing Kindness to Medicine, a memoir one reviewer described as “a story of grace that transcends the field of medicine … [Dr. Freeman] shows us that kindness is redemptive and so transforms even the most troubling of situations.” Freeman is the author of three volumes of poetry, two books of essays and is the coauthor of an anthology focused on issues of caring.
