Since 1998, the annual Jessie Stewart Richardson Memorial Lectures have constituted an evolving conversation at UVA on urgent matters of medical error, patient safety, and—a foundation of good clinical practice—paying attention to the patient, who is, after all, among every clinician’s best teachers. This year’s presentation emphasizes the art of listening and makes the case for clinicians keeping themselves attuned to their patients, and also to themselves, in order to give the best care. The speaker, internist and poet John Coulehan, is author of The Medical Interview: Mastering Skills for Clinical Practice (FA Davis, 2005) as well as six volumes of poetry, the latest of which is The Wound Dresser (2016).

Presented by Lt. Gen. John LeMoyne (ret), MPA
On September 11, 2001, John Le Moyne was transitioning to a new job. That evening his boss called and asked him to change his plans. He was diverted on route to a command to be the Army G-1, the Chief Human Resources Officer for the U.S. Army. He succeeded General Maude who had been killed in the attack that day. Although a career infantry officer, the selection of him to lead HR was inspired. He expected and found the best in others. He lived a life of serving soldiers.
John's story exemplifies wisdom’s emergence from diversity. Drawing on experiences from a 40 year career in the US Army that culminated in service as the head personnel officer at the Pentagon, Gen. LeMoyne will discuss the challenges of leadership in high stakes situations and the importance of respect and professionalism. His story of the Human Dimension of Leadership will provide insight into what it means to act relationally, compassionately and to be appreciative.
