This edition of Rounds will feature Susannah Cahalan, who has worked at the New York Post for ten years. In 2009, she received the Silurian Award of Excellence for the article “My Mysterious Lost Month of Madness,” on which her memoir, the New York Times bestseller, Brain on Fire: My Month of Madness, is based.

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 (September to May) 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.
