Culture of Empathy Builder Joan Kuenz

 Joan Kuenz

 My background, as a professional, has been as a nurse epidemiologist  providing education in health care. Also, my passion in education started many years when I returned to school, earning a 7-12th grade teaching credential in health and science, and a graduate degree in special education. Being a life long student, as many teachers are, to keep my in-state, and out-of- state, credential updated, my path lead me to taking courses in a major area of interest, the arts. My feeling is all the arts whether, visual, dance, music , theater, film, poetry and writing need to be an integral part of all education, as well as values. After retiring from my previous position recently, my focus is to work on a publication on the topic of integration of art and values in education.

 Overview and Introduction and more videos

 
We had a wonderful meeting at the first Empathy Healthcare Café on June 25th, 2009. We received so many comments like, "great Café", "what's next?" and "how can we keep this going?"  Thank you to everyone that contributed time, energy, ideas, stories, video, supplies, resources, etc. to hosting the Café. Below is the video of the Café.

From Joan. "Thank you for attending and creating a special evening. As many of you mentioned to me the energy and ideas in the room were truly inspiring! The list that is attached is a compilation of the ideas everyone contributed during the action item session. There were many comments, in your reflections and after the close of the Café about “let’s keep going.” If you would like to get together to put your ideas into the next phase just respond to this email, and then we can pick a time, and place to work on an Empathy Grass Roots Movement."   Joan Kuenz
