Write Science: Why Do Doctors Write Books?

Wednesday, March 22, 2023 at 5:30pm to 7:00pm

MIT Museum
314 Main Street, Gambrill Center, Cambridge MA 02142

Curated to spark thought-provoking ideas and engaging conversations, this program series offers the opportunity to meet leading writers in science, technology and art. 

Presented in conjunction with the MIT Press Bookstore.

Wednesday March 22

Why do physicians choose to write books? Join us for a conversation between Jay Baruch, author of Tornado of Life and Mikkael Sekeres, author of Drugs and the FDA, both recently published by the MIT Press, as they explore whether they are doctors who write or writers who doctor, and the storytelling inherent in medicine.

The program will be moderated by Deborah Blum, science journalist and the director of the Knight Science Journalism program at MIT. Following the conversation, you’ll have the chance to purchase the books and have them signed.

Free event.
Seating is Limited. Advance registration is recommended.
