Tuberculosis in History and the Arts


From: Monday, March 24, 2014, 05:00pm

To: Monday, March 24, 2014,

Bruce D. Fisher - MD, FACP, FIDSA

Whether by direct effects on human history or as expressed in many genres of graphic and performing arts, there is no illness equal to tuberculosis. Failure to address tuberculosis adequately in marginalized populations is a major source of shame for society. A review of tuberculosis as expressed in the humanities and the social sciences heightens the sensitivity of physicians to this disease and to its effect on people.

A clinical professor of medicine at Rutgers-RWJMS, Dr. Fisher is on staff at Saint Peter’s University Hospital in New Brunswick and Jersey Shore University Medical Center in Neptune, NJ.

Sponsors: The Medical Humanities Working Group at the CCA and RWJMS, the Center for Cultural Analysis, the College Avenue Campus Dean, and Undergraduate Academic Affairs.
