Call for Essays: Gold Foundation

The Arnold P. Gold Foundation is inviting essay submissions from nursing and medical students for the Hope Babette Tang Humanism in Healthcare Essay Contest.

The prompt this year asks writers to use the following quote as inspiration and to reflect on humanism in healthcare during the past difficult year using their experiences or observations, as an individual or as a team (doctors, nurses, therapists, etc.)

“We’ll observe how the burdens braved by humankind
Are also the moments that make us humans kind;
Let each morning find us courageous, brought closer;
Heeding the light before the fight is over.
When this ends, we’ll smile sweetly, finally seeing
In testing times, we became the best of beings.”
– Excerpt from “The Miracle of Morning,” by Amanda Gorman

All submissions are due March 15, 2021.
