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.
Seating is Limited. Advance registration is recommended.
