(Doors open at 6:00 p.m. Seating is limited; early arrival is highly recommended.)

Theresa Brown, RN, is a frequent contributor to the New York Times opinion page and a leading voice on health care. With “The Shift,” she offers a vivid first-hand account of one shift on the floor of a cancer ward and opens our eyes to the intense, frustrating, and often joyful profession. Brown reveals how nurses advocate for their patients, explain treatment to families, make dozens of medical decisions, interact with doctors and hospital staff, and keep their own emotions in check.
