Work with Marty Nemko, May 9, 2019: Career and Life Lessons from Jonah Salk

  On the May 9, 2019 edition of Work with Marty Nemko, I talk with Charlotte Jacobs, Stanford Professor of Medicine and author of Salk: A Life, which the New York Times called "Science writing at its best." We focus on unearthing career and life lessons for all of us that we can derive from Salk's life.

Previously, his career column appeared for six years in the San Francisco Chronicle and then wrote The Big Idea continuing series on WashingtonPost.com and the Working it Out column on TheAtlantic.com.
