Join Dr. Robert Wachter, author of The Digital Doctor: Hope, Hype, and Harm at the Dawn of Medicine’s Computer Age, as he discusses how digital health and health technology have evolved since his book was published in 2015 and what patients need to know in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Chair of the Department of Medicine at University of California, San Francisco, and one of the nation’s most influential physician-executives, Dr. Wachter will give a short presentation, read briefly from his book and then answer your questions. Submit a question for him to answer during the live session!(link is external)

The talk highlights a New York Times best-seller selected by the NNLM Reading Club for June as the club focuses on digital health literacy. The New York Journal of Books called it “quite simply an excellent book written with intelligence and balance for both the general public and health care practitioners.”
