Thomas Moore, PhD (not MD) is the guest speaker at this year’s Kate Kuhn Woodbury Memorial Lecture. A description for Moore’s presentation, "Simple Pleasures: Enjoying the Life that is Given to You," says:
"The spiritual part of us has grand visions, wants to accomplish great things, and would like to know everything. The deep soul thrives more on everyday experiences of joy and pleasure. Many of us have been taught not to appreciate this. In fact, some seek out pain as noble and meritorious. But if you don’t cultivate joy, you risk becoming depressed and angry. You lose your direction and sense of self. This is important for grounding our lives and allowing for creative work and solid, long standing relationships."Kate Kuhn Woodbury, M.D., an anesthesiologist at Saint Francis, died in 1996 at the age of 35 from ovarian cancer. Kate’s father passed away in 2005, also from cancer. This year’s beneficiary of the lecture is Clinical Cancer Research.
