New York Times Best-selling Author
Dr. Sampson Davis On-Campus Today!
New York Times best-selling author
Dr. Sampson Davis will speak at BCCC on the health care crisis
facing inner city America, today, April 2 at
noon in the Fine Arts Theatre as
part of the Bard Library/Bookstore Author Series.
Davis, co-author of the New York Times bestsellers “The Pact,” “We Beat the
Street” and “The Bond,” will call on his own perspectives as a front-line
emergency room physician in his hometown of Newark, N.J. to offer
invaluable practical advice for those living in communities, like
Baltimore, where asthma, heart disease, stroke, obesity, AIDS and other
health conditions are disproportionately endemic.
Davis’s latest book, “Living and Dying in Brick City,” presents an urgent
picture of medical care in our cities and offers practical tips at the end
of each chapter for dealing with such issues as sudden cardiac arrest,
abusive relationships, sexually transmitted diseases, clubbing violence,
cancer, smoking, substance abuse, and more! Dr. Davis appeared on the Today
Show March 25 to discuss how to troubleshoot health symptoms and when to
know it’s time to visit a doctor. View the segment
Davis’ presentation will be held from noon - 2 p.m. in the Fine Arts
Theatre. Click here for event flyer and visit Dr. Davis’ personal website at www.drsampsondavis.com.
