Host: Martin Samuels, MD
Guest: Marcia Angell, MD, MACP
Dr. Marcia Angell moved into the field of medical journalism from a career in pathology. She was the first woman to serve as editor-in-chief of the New England Journal of Medicine, and since leaving that post, has written frequently in professional journals and public press on a wide range of topics. Outspoken and frequently controversial, Dr. Angell joins host Dr. Martin Samuels to discuss her career.
