Jun 01, 2016 - 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.


Faculty Club of Columbia University Medical Center, Physicians & Surgeons Building, 630 W. 168th St., 4th Floor, New York, NY

In the last Narrative Medicine Rounds of the semester, Elisabeth L. Rosenthal, a New York Times correspondent who trained as a medical doctor, will talk about Changing Healthcare Through Patient Stories. In the presentation, Rosenthal will address some of the healthcare issues she’s written about in “Paying Till it Hurts,” an award-winning two-year-long series in the Times on healthcare costs and pricing. Currently she is completing a book about the commercialization of American medicine, to be published by Penguin Random House in early 2017.

Narrative Medicine Rounds are lectures or readings presented by scholars, clinicians, or writers engaged in work at the intersection of narrative and health care. Rounds are held on the first Wednesday of each month during the Spring and Fall terms from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. in the Columbia University Medical Center Faculty Club, followed by a reception. Rounds are free and open to the public; no RSVP is necessary. Students, staff, faculty, patients, friends, and interested others are warmly welcome to attend.
