Author Event w/ Victoria Sweet of Slow Medicine and God

The work of Guggenheim Fellow, physician, and prize-winning historian Victoria Sweet, as the late Oliver Sacks said, "should be required reading for anyone interested in the 'business' of healthcare -- and especially those interested in the humanity of healthcare." In Slow Medicine: The Way to Healing, Sweet unpacks her vision for how healing works and delves into why we must rethink how our healthcare system treats patients. Join us as she discusses her book and the conversation and experiences of effective, humane, and sustainable healing. Whether you are in the field of medicine, or interested in experiences as a patient, this should be a lovely and fascinating night. Books Inc Burlingame will be on-site with books during the event. About: Victoria Sweet was a physician at San Francisco's Laguna Honda Hospital for more than twenty years, an experience she chronicled in God's Hotel: A Doctor, a Hospital, and a Pilgrimage to the Heart of Medicine.

An associate clinical professor of medicine at the University of California, San Francisco, she is also a prizewinning historian with a Ph.D. in history and social medicine, and the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship.
