$1 Million Gift to Center for Biomedical Ethics and Humanities Honors Daniel Becker

“We help our students and colleagues learn to pay the right attention to their patients, to find out who they are outside the exam room. Who were they before they were sick? Do they have support from family or friends? There are ways of listening and seeing that lead to improved outcomes.” – Daniel Becker, MD, MPH

Dr. Daniel Becker, a faculty member in DOM’s Division of General, Geriatric, Palliative and Hospital Medicine and director of the School of Medicine’s Center for Biomedical Ethics and Humanities, was featured in the Spring 2017 issue of the UVA Health Foundation periodical Pulse. The article “Fostering the Art of Medicine” celebrates a recent $1 million gift from Carol Angle, MD, to endow a faculty fund for the Center.

Dr. Angle says she has been a patient of Dr. Becker’s since 2000, and has “respect for him as a superb and empathetic physician.” She hopes that the fellowship “fosters physicians in his mold. This is an excellent program, and supporting it is deeply rewarding.”
