Watch the 12th Annual Suzanne Renée Leider Lecture

At the 12th Annual Suzanne Renée Leider Lecture on May 25, UCI Sue & Bill Gross School of Nursing Dean Mark Lazenby, an advanced practice oncology nurse, delivered a powerfully moving presentation about the nature of suffering and compassion.

Suffering, he says, is feeling disconnected from being alive and suffering alone. Nurses use empathy, touch and assessment to relieve others of their suffering.

He differentiates chosen and wanted suffering (running a marathon), chosen and unwanted suffering (marathon runners who cannot finish) and unchosen and unwanted suffering (cancer).

Congratulations to this year’s Suzanne Renée Leider Endowment award recipients: Lacye Lawson, Ling Yee Lei, Jessica Hernandez, Matthew Lee and Shelby Lee.

This annual lecture honors the memory of Suzanne Renée Leider, a nurse whose vision of compassionate care changed the life of her patients and all who were fortunate to know her.
