Event Description: Medical diagnosis is detective work. In his book, The Family Who Couldn’t Sleep, D.T. Max unfolds a medical mystery of a noble Venetian family whose offspring suffered from fatal insomnia. Physician and New York Times columnist Lisa Sanders takes readers on a biweekly journey of medical investigation in the Diagnosis series, which inspired the hit T.V. series House MD. Academy Fellow Randi Hutter Epstein moderates a discussion with these two award-winning writers, exploring not only the mysteries behind diagnosis but the process of turning medical sleuthing into riveting narratives.
