Session 102 | Peabody’s Secret and the Care of the Individual with Intellectual Disabilities, Part 2

Hosted By: Dr. Rick Rader

In 1927 Harvard Medical School Professor Francis Peabody gave a game-changing speech to his medical students. His “secret” has promoted the humanitarian care of individuals for decades. This presentation not only reveals his “secret” but connects it to the comprehensive care of individuals with intellectual disabilities. Beyond Peabody we explore the distinction between “upper case” CARE and “lower case” care and how it can help providers navigate the path to personifying care.
