John Zen Jackson, Of Counsel in the firm’s Healthcare and Litigation Departments, will present an online talk on “Walt Whitman’s Healing Presence: A Poet’s Civil War” on Wednesday, August 26, 2020 at 7:00pm. The presentation is being hosted as a Zoom meeting by the Medical History Society of New Jersey, of which Mr. Jackson is a member.
During the Civil War, the great American poet and future Camden resident Walt Whitman volunteered at hospitals in Washington, D.C., tending to wounded soldiers. His experiences as a caregiver during the national crisis inspired numerous poems with medical themes. Drawing on his article published in the Winter 2020 issue of MDAdvisor, Mr. Jackson will discuss Whitman’s Civil War experiences and their influence on his poetry.
Medical history is an area of personal interest for Mr. Jackson, whose healthcare practice emphasizes litigated matters in judicial and administrative forums, including professional liability claims, licensure and credentialing issues with administrative agencies and health care entities, reimbursement and insurance fraud disputes. Mr. Jackson is Certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as a Civil Trial Attorney and has extensive experience in trying jury cases to a verdict.
