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.

Dr. 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.


Dr. 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 here.


Dr. 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
