Author Event – Elisabeth Rosenthal “An American Sickness”

Presented by the Medical Arts Series
At a moment of drastic political upheaval, “An American Sickness” is a shocking investigation into our dysfunctional healthcare system. Breaking down this monolithic healthcare business into the individual industries—the hospitals, doctors, insurance companies, and drug manufacturers, Rosenthal exposes the recent evolution of American medicine as never before. Rosenthal spells out exactly how to decode medical doublespeak, avoid the pitfalls of the pharmaceuticals racket, and get the care you and your family deserve. This is about what we can do, as individual patients, both to navigate the maze that is American healthcare and also to demand far-reaching reform. Open to the public; No tickets required.
