Panel: Harmony of the Medical Humanities
Monday, October 8, 2:45 p – 3:45 p

Sarah E Rubin is an Assistant Professor of Medical Anthropology in the Department of Social Medicine at Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine (OU-HCOM), Cleveland Campus. She also lectures part-time at the Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine at Case Western Reserve University (CCLCM). Her research centers on the intersections of maternal and infant health and culture. Recent research questions focus on the experience of psychological distress and coping and how these cognitive and behavioral processes are framed by cultural models and social structures. Her work tries to clarify associations between daily experiences and broader structures that constrain those experiences, all in the context of racial and gender disparities in health. Her primary methodologies are ethnographic and phenomenological. Recent research includes investigating intersections of mental health, motherhood, poverty, and culture in urban South Africa and stress, race, motherhood, and poverty in relation to infant mortality risk in urban Ohio.

Her teaching and research also include medical humanities theory and practice. The Devising Healthy Community’s block she co-teaches at CCLCM uses a medical/health humanities framework to teach social determinants of health and community engagement through art. Her work with the Rural and Under-served Scholars Program (RUSP) at OU-HCOM uses forum theater and narrative techniques to enhance its professionalism training and community-needs awareness. She also has worked with a team of faculty to pilot a Narrative Medicine elective at OU-HCOM called the Open Book Project.

Dr. Kaitlyn (Kaci) Korn is a third year resident and chief of the Internal Medicine program at South Pointe Hospital, Cleveland Clinic Foundation, in Warrensville Heights, Ohio.

Prior to attending medical school, Dr. Korn received a Bachelor of Music degree in Voice Performance from Baldwin-Wallace College Conservatory of Music in Berea, Ohio. Dr. Korn’s music background is in opera performance and she has performed many roles on both the collegiate and professional levels. Though busy with residency, Dr. Korn still finds time to sing and make time for music in her life, which she feel is enriching to her medical practice. After residency, she plans to become active again in the local choral, opera, and music theatre community.
