Description: Neurologists have an intimate and unique relationship with language. Poetry is a form of language that is ideal for expressing those frequent moments in a neurologist's life that deserve intellectual exploration and artistic expression. This presentation will demonstrate how reading and writing poetry can augment the neurologist's life in and away from the clinic. The anatomy of a successful poem will be discussed to give attendees encouragement to begin or enhance their experience of reading and writing poetry. Poetry is a balm, a deep and rich endeavor that can be an antidote to neurologist's burnout.
