Theresa Brown, a clinical nurse and frequent contributor to The New York Times, takes us behind the scenes of one life-changing 12-hour shift in a hospital’s cancer ward. In her book, The Shift: One Nurse, Twelve Hours, Four Patients' Lives, Brown tells the personal stories of four patients, looks closely at America’s medical practices, and examines sickness, healing, and empathy.

Event: Theresa Brown will be in conversation with Bobbie Berkowitz, Dean of the Columbia University's School of Nursing
