Meet Dr. Haider Warraich

Tuesday, July 23, 2019 7:00pm

Discussion, Q&A & Signing - State of the Heart

In STATE OF THE HEART, Dr. Haider Warraich takes readers inside the ER, inside doctor’s offices and recovery rooms, and inside the history and technology of heart disease with his signature blend of lucid writing and compelling narrative. Heart disease has been around for a while, but the type of heart disease people have, why they have it, and how it’s treated is changing. Yet, the golden age of heart science is only just beginning, and with treatments of heart disease altering the very definitions of human life and death, there is no better time to look at the present and future of heart disease, the doctors and nurses who treat it, the patients and caregivers who live with it, and the stories they hold close to their chests.
