Binah: Dr. Vivek Murthy On Fighting Loneliness During COVID-19 And Beyond

Meredith Nierman

Former US Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy warns of the dangers of loneliness and the lasting impact it can have on our health. 

His new book is Together: The Healing Power of Human Connection in a Sometimes Lonely World

He’s joined in conversation by Dr. Lucy Kalanithi, Clinical Associate Professor of Medicine at Stanford University, and the widow of Paul Kalanithi, author of When Breath Becomes Air.

David Kwan is the editor and producer of Binah, featuring remarkable artists and thinkers who’ve come to speak at the Jewish Community Center of San Francisco as part of their Arts & Ideas program.
