Rachel gave a luncheon talk to 400 people gathered for the Keegan Leadership Lecture Series on Friday May 23, 2014. She declared to the gathering at Rohnert Park’s Doubletree Hotel that “a doctor’s mind, training and experience can diagnose and treat disease, but only the physician’s heart can heal.” During her half hour talk, Remen told stories of her own experience as a physician in a profession that frowned upon bringing ones emotionally sensitivity to the job.

The Keegan Leadership Lecture Series seeks to inspire others to serve the Sonoma Country community as James & Billie Keegan did for more than 50 years. Each year, outstanding community leaders are recognized who exemplify James and Billie Keegan’s philosophy of “giving back” to the community. Proceeds from the Leadership Series help support Memorial Hospital’s Palliative Care Center located in beautiful Santa Rosa.
