Fresh Eyes

It is such an encouragement to be here in Maryland with so many passionate future healthcare leaders. Watching the story today of Lewis Blackman was challenging. I kept thinking, “Come on, just one person look at this kid with fresh eyes. Throw away the preconceived notions you have and LOOK at him!” Further reflection made me ask the question of myself if I look at each patient with fresh eyes? Am I able to truly assess each new individual I interview and examine without pushing forward¬†a pattern of diagnosis that I hope everything squeezes into? I’m sure it takes tremendous intentionality and integrity to see each patient with fresh eyes, but if we can adopt this practice we may just end up saving countless individuals in need of our care.
