H 1 Harriet Washington – medical journalist

Able to write astutely both for sophisticated medical practitioners and know-nothings like me, she has been a fellow in ethics at Harvard Medical School and has reported for USA Today. Her books include Medical Apartheid: The Dark History of Medical Experimentation on Black Americans from Colonial Times to the Present, winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award. We’ll convene for narrative medicine rounds at Columbia University with featured musical guest Hannah Read. This event is free and open to the public.
