Karen’s Speaking Engagements
Upcoming Speaking Engagements

2017

 To be announced...

“Dr. Pape opened everyone's eyes to unanticipated opportunities. Dr. Pape's talk was so moving, both on how we've been missing opportunities for caring and optimism primarily from old habits in us, as physicians, let alone in allowing maladaptive habits develop and persist in our patients”
—Hot Topics in Neonatology
