WiseAuthors Presents Dr. Martin Shapiro: ‘The Present Illness: American Health Care and Its Afflictions’ 🙋
After five years of thoroughly researching our country’s healthcare system, Stephen Wise Free Synagogue member Dr. Martin Shapiro presents his new book: “The Present Illness: American Health Care and Its Afflictions.”
In this groundbreaking exploration, Dr. Shapiro identifies commodification of care, deficiency in compassion, problematic communication, and lack of commitment to the common good as core problems with health care in America — and offers a vision of how we can do better.
Whether you are professionally or academically involved in medicine or simply interested in an important topic that affects us all, we hope you’ll join Rabbi Sam Natov in conversation with our congregation’s latest WiseAuthor!
