How often do you notice how we're surrounded by nurture?
Remarkably attentive robins caring for their tiny, vulnerable babies in the nest. Doting farmers caring for young corn stalks with tiny roots. Devoted nurses and aides caring for confused and anxious patients with debilitating dementia. Our instinct to provide nurture and succor is part of who we are as human beings, although clearly this is not our province alone. Dr. Edward Hurley talks about the prominence of nurture in his life.
Dr. Edward Hurley is a pediatrician and neonatology fellow in Providence. He lives in Seekonk, Massachusetts with his wife, Sarah, and their daughter, Maddy.
