Science Book Discussion

Education/Lectures
Waterford Public Library, 49 Rope Ferry Road, Waterford, CT , 06385

The Emperor of all Maladies by Siddhartha Mukherjee (2011).
Dr. Richard Hellman, an oncologist and the medical director of the new L&M Cancer Center in Waterford will lead a discussion of this "biography" of cancer - from its first documented appearances thousands of years ago through the epic battles in the 20th century to cure, control, and conquer it, to a radical new understanding of its essence. This fascinating and compelling book is written with a cellular biologist's precision, a historian's perspective, and a biographer's passion. The result is an astonishingly lucid and eloquent chronicle of a disease humans have lived with—and perished from—for more than five thousand years. Multiple copies of the book are available prior to the discussion date.
