Interesting, disturbing story…: “…researchers at Fox Chase Cancer Center have gathered evidence indicating that some trials explicitly exclude individuals based on their sexual orientation.”

Tucson Festival of Books Appearance Saturday, March 13

Icon Written by Alex on March 5, 2010 – 3:08 pm

I will be speaking about clinical trials and signing copies of Chasing Medical Miracles at the Tucson Festival of Books next Saturday, March 13. The Festival, now only in its second year, is a fantastic event for anyone interested in books. More than 400 authors will speak, present, sign books, and be available to answer questions and talk. As I did last year I am presenting at the Festival with Dr. Allan Hamilton, author of the Scalpel and the Soul, an inspirational memoir about his experiences as a neurosurgeon.

The presentation is Medicine: the Miracle of Science and the Science of Miracles on Saturday at 1:00 pm – 02:00 pm in the Koffler Builindg on the University of Arizona Campus, room 204.

I look forward to meeting you there or at the signing afterward!
