Agenda

 

 

10:00 AM CT

What the Coronavirus Crisis Reveals about American Medicine

Speaker: Siddhartha Mukherjee, M.D., DPhil
 

Medicine is a system for delivering care and support; it’s also a system of information, quality control, and lab science. The COVID-19 pandemic has shown that all need fixing.

Siddhartha Mukherjee is the author of The Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer, winner of the 2011 Pulitzer Prize in general nonfiction, and The Laws of Medicine. Mukherjee’s THE GENE: An Intimate History—his latest work—is the story of the quest to decipher the master-code of instructions that makes and defines humans. Mukherjee is an assistant professor of medicine at Columbia University and a cancer physician and researcher. A Rhodes scholar, he graduated from Stanford University, University of Oxford, and Harvard Medical School. He has published articles in Nature, The New England Journal of Medicine, The New York Times, and Cell.
