    "When We Do Harm"
    Yes, it feels weird to have a book launch in the middle of a pandemic. 
    Almost two years ago, when we selected  the publication date for this book, our biggest concern was pulling as far away from the November election as possible. So we picked April. What could *possibly*happen in April.....
    "When We Do Harm" officially releases on Tuesday. We'd planned to celebrate its publication in New York's legendary Strand Bookstore, which--like everything else in NYC--is unfortunately on temporary lockdown.
    But Strand has graciously offered to open its virtual doors for us on Tuesday April 21 at 7 pm (EST) and you are all invited. 
    Alas, you'll be getting my apartment instead of Strand's beautiful Rare Book Room, but you can join from anywhere in the world. I hope you will come!
    (It's free. Just click to get the link from Strand.)

    A Tribute to NYC's Public Hospitals
    The New York Times Magazine cover storythis weekend highlights the public hospitals like Elmhurst, Bellevue, Jacobi, Lincoln, Coney Isand, and Kings County that have been shouldering much of the Covid pandemic. It is an incredible article with powerful photos.

    "Along with New York's public schools, its public housing, its subways and its libraries, the public hospitals form the democratic bulwark of the city. [There is] a promise of equality and opportunity embodied by the city's public institutions. They are the indispensable glue beneath the disposable glitter."

    You can listen to her discuss her new book on next week's People's Pharmacy broadcast/podcast. And yes, we did ask her about misdiagnosis, although it isn't the primary focus of the interview.
