Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Siddhartha Mukherjee, M.D., to speak at 2015 Leadership Academy

December 17, 2014

The California Medical Association is excited to announce that Siddhartha Mukherjee, M.D. — an oncologist, cancer researcher and Pulitzer Prize-winning science writer bringing new insights into the causes and cures of cancer — will be a featured speaker at the 2015 Western Health Care Leadership Academy, May 29-31, 2015, at Loews Hollywood Hotel.

Dr. Mukherjee’s accomplishments as both a physician and author are powerful, illuminating and inspiring.

In his Pulitzer Prize-winning book, The Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer, Dr. Mukherjee gives readers a fascinating look into the origins and causes of cancer, its deadly effect on the human body, how it has virtually enveloped modern civilization, and the epic battles that are taking place to control, cure, and conquer it.

Dr. Mukherjee is currently working with filmmaker Ken Burns on a film based on his Pulitzer Prize-winning book. The three-part documentary is scheduled to air on PBS in spring 2015.

Dr. Mukherjee joins Keynote Speaker Malcolm Gladwell — author of phenomenally successful bestsellers that have changed the way we think about our world, including The Tipping Point — and a slate of other industry experts.

The 18th Annual Western Health Care Leadership Academy continues its mission of providing information and tools needed to succeed in today’s rapidly changing health care environment. Attendees will hear from the experts and leaders of change. The conference will examine the most significant challenges facing health care today and present proven models and innovative approaches to transform your organization’s care delivery and business practices.
