Communication is the key that unlocks understanding. But what happens when the key doesn’t fit? All too often in health care, as well as our daily lives, we are assuming our roles and running on auto pilot which creates dissonance and misunderstanding within ourselves and those around us. Practicing improv puts us in a state of presence and shows us how we show up in the world when we are caught off guard and at our most vulnerable.  This is an invitation to let go of your identity and play. Build "communication fitness” to show up 100% and respond vs react, especially when challenged.  Experience how we bridge the gaps between doctors and patients during this fun improvisation session. Being a doctor is not required!
