"You Can Stop Humming Now: A Doctor's Stories of Life, Death, and In Between"

Apr 30, 2018

On this edition of ST Medical Monday, we speak with Dr. Daniela Lamas, author of "You Can Stop Humming Now: A Doctor’s Stories of Life, Death, and In Between." As was noted of this book by Publishers Weekly: "In this ruminative account of treating patients, Lamas, a pulmonary and critical care doctor at the Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School, analyzes how the critically ill manage life during and after treatment. She meets people who are neither bitter nor sorrowful about their conditions, but are constantly aware of their precarious states.... Lamas weaves a thoughtful and beautiful narrative.... The author wonderfully captures the lives of those who've completed treatment and adjusted to a new existence."
