A conversation with New York Times’ Pam Belluck about health care in practice

The latest Stanford Health Policy Forum featuring science and health reporter Pam Belluck is now available online. A staff writer for the New York Times for more than 15 years, Belluck has written about a wide range of health-related topics, including stories for the newspaper's Vanishing Mind series about Alzheimer’s disease and dementia across various cultures and countries. She also authored the recently released book, "Island Practice”, which chronicles the life of the only surgeon residing on the island of Nantucket.

During the forum, Paul Costello, chief communications officer at the medical school, talked with Belluck about what sparked her interest in writing the book and her distinguished journalism career covering health and science.
