[ARCHIVED] Dr. Victoria Sweet, author of God's Hotel Thursday, January 30 @7:00pm

On Thursday, January 30 @7:00, Dr. Victoria Sweet, will speak about her book God's Hotel: a Doctor, a Hospital, and a Pilgrimage to the Heart of Medicine. Dr. Sweet is an Associate Clinical Professor of Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco, and a prize-winning historian with a Ph.D. in history. She practiced medicine for twenty years at Laguna Honda Hospital in San Francisco, where she began writing. In God’s Hotel, she lays out her evidence—in stories of her patients and her hospital—for some radically new ideas about medicine and healthcare in this country. In our attempts to get control of healthcare costs by privileging “efficiency,” she suggests, we’ve been headed down the wrong path.
