Radio Book Club: The Finest Traditions of My Calling

The June 2016 selection for the radio bookclub is The Finest Traditions of My Calling: One Physician’s Search for the Renewal of Medicine by Denver physician Abraham M. Nussbaum.  In this book Dr. Nussbaum discusses the changes happening to patients and doctors in our healthcare system.  We live in an era of continuous healthcare reforms, many of which pursue efficiency and cost‑effectiveness instead of forming therapeutic relationships or seeking health equality.

Dr. Nussbaum, a practicing psychiatrist, explores how population‑based healthcare reforms are diminishing the relationship between doctors and patients—to the detriment of both. Dr. Nussbaum transforms our ossified political debates about healthcare reform into a thoughtful discussion about the renewal of medicine.

KGNU is partnering with the Boulder Bookstore for our radio book club. Every month Arsen Kashkashian, head buyer at the Boulder Bookstore, will select a book to inspire the KGNU listening audience to read along together. We will then be joined live in studio by the author for a call in show and book discussion. Arsen Kashkashian says participating in a bookclub is a great dynamic way for readers to enjoy a book.
