- Alan Alda: Can You Hear Me Now?
Alan Alda is best known for his long, prolific acting career. But he has also devoted years to learning about – and teaching – communication. The Emmy-winning actor helped found the Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science at Stony Brook University, which teaches doctors and scientists how to communicate more effectively. He also authored the recent book “If I Understood You, Would I Have This Look on My Face?” The former star of television’s M*A*S*H*, who has appeared in such films as “Crimes and Misdemeanors” and “The Aviator,” talks with Kate about why human beings are so bad at communicating about sickness -- and about what helps them improve.
