Overview

In 2014, Dr. Hassan A. Tetteh delivered a deeply inspiring keynote to first-year medical students during their White Coat Ceremony at his medical school alma mater. Now, published for the first time in book form with illustrations from his daughter, The Art of Human Care presents Tetteh's words of wisdom and answers the question: How can we change the world through healing?

Dr. Tetteh shares how his own life-altering, near-death experience profoundly affected his approach to health care and ultimately led to his development of The Art of Human Care theory.

Though his near-death ordeal took place before he became a doctor--before he was even accepted to medical school--this experience helped him embrace the mind-body-spirit connection that informs his practice every day.

In The Art of Human Care, Dr. Tetteh combines many of his own personal stories with the healing power of art. His down-to-earth humanitarianism and unique perspective on what it truly means to "heal" will inspire readers to learn how they, too, can turn passion into a purpose, work every day to make the impossible possible, and save the world one patient at a time.

"With health, wisdom reveals itself, art becomes manifest, we have strength to fight life's challenges, our wealth becomes useful, we may apply our intelligence, and positively change the world for generations."
--Dr. Hassan A. Tetteh
