Binah: How Medicine (Mis)treats Cancer

Dr. Azra Raza

Oncologist Dr. Azra Raza ruminates on the lost war on cancer. Why has so little progress been made in diagnosing and treating cancer over the past few decades? How can physicians, researchers and patients advocate for more effective research and humane treatments?

Her book is, The First Cell: And the Human Costs of Pursuing Cancer to the Last.

She’s joined in conversation by physician and philanthropist Dr. Shoshana Ungerleider.

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.
