Please join Busboys and Poets Books as we welcome author Elisabeth Rosenthal to 14th and V to discuss her book.

As a Harvard-trained medical doctor and veteran journalist—first with the New York Times and now as editor-in-chief of Kaiser Health News—Elisabeth Rosenthal has witnessed firsthand how healthcare has become a business. In AN AMERICAN SICKNESS: How Healthcare Became Big Business and How You Can Take It Back, she provides an in-depth analysis of how, in the past twenty-five years, the healthcare system has begun to focus less on the patient and more on revenue.

Dr. Elisabeth Rosenthal was for twenty-two years a reporter, correspondent, and senior writer at The New York Times before becoming the editor in chief of Kaiser Health News, an independent journalism newsroom focusing on health and health policy. She holds an MD from Harvard Medical School, trained in internal medicine, and has worked as an ER physician. She lives in New York City and Washington, DC.

Books will be available for purchase before and after the event. Please contact books@busboysandpoets.com with questions.
