One Book One Campus

The Diving Bell and the Butterfly

2018-2019 Academic Year

We are pleased to announce that the CU Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education (CU CIPE) in partnership with your programs and many campus entities will again sponsor ‘One Book One Campus’ at AMC during the 2018-19 academic year. We have selected The Diving Bell and the Butterfly: A Memoir of Life in Death by Jean-Dominique Bauby​.

One Book One Campus is a cornerstone of the CU CIPE Open Campus Program. The theme for Open Campus this year is going to be Strengthening Ourselves through Awareness and Resilience (SOAR). There will be a number of Interprofessional events​​ during this summer and fall that will highlight resilience and wellness from various perspectives.

The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, a brief but powerful memoir is a testimony to mindfulness and more. From a BMJ review, ​“this book is undoubtedly a medical masterpiece because of its uncompromising account of human nature; how it wilts under sufferance and pain but blossoms with even a trace of kindness and love. It is pertinent to our professional and personal lives, reminding us to treat patients (or indeed anyone) as we would wish to be treated ourselves”.​​
