John Abramson, MD is the author of Overdosed America: The Broken Promise of American Medicine. In that book, Dr. Abramson deconstructs the scientific sleight of hand in presenting clinical trial results that lead to the routine prescription of, e.g., pricey cholesterol-lowering drugs even when

their effectiveness has not been proven; he also coherently discusses many other issues, including profit motives which detract from simple, healthful, lifestyle choices. Dr. Abramson worked as a family doctor in Appalachia with the National Health Service Corps and for 20 years in Hamilton,

Massachusetts. He was a Robert Wood Johnson fellow and is currently on the clinical faculty at Harvard Medical School, where he teaches primary care. He has been published widely and appeared on national network television. Join us for this provocative lecture on the crisis in modern health care.
