Recent Work – Dr. Verghese

I photographed Dr. Abraham Verghese for Stanford Medical School earlier this year.

I just read a story about him in the The New York Times.  He is concerned that medical students rely too much on technology and equipment and not enough on their senses to examine and diagnose patients.

There is a lot to the man.  Not only is he a talented physician and intructor but he has 3 books out – 2 memoirs and a novel.  He came to the U.S. from Ethiopia when civil war began in 1974.  He treated patients during the early period of the AIDS epidemic in Tennessee. Read the Times story, the link is below.
