On the Poetics and Politics of Health

Slought Foundation, Health Ecologies Lab


Combining first-person narration, scholarly reflections, and advocacy, this volume, edited by Aaron Levy, features conversations with physician-scholars Rita Charon and Jonathan M. Metzl and provides a holistic view of the human interactions and structural forces that define healthcare today. The contributors afford us opportunities to reconsider health through a poetic and political lense and help us envision a more socially informed and just practice of medicine.
