IN CONVERSATION: Dr. Arnold Eiser and Prof. Ross Koppel on THE ETHOS OF MEDICINE IN POSTMODERN AMERICA

Join us for a conversation about The Ethos of Medicine in Postmodern America. Author Dr. Arnold Eiser will discuss his book with Prof. Ross Koppel (editor, First Do Less Harm: Confronting the Inconvenient Problems of Patient Safety), who teaches in Penn's Department of Sociology.  

6:30 -- Light Refreshment

7:00 -- Talk

"As medicine becomes less a profession and more a business in the United States and elsewhere, there is a huge need to revisit the ethic of the doctor-patient relationship... Dr. Arnold R. Eiser’s book takes a long, informed, serious, and useful look at this pressing ethical question."
