Dr. Sampson Davis, "Living and Dying in Brick City"
(Book Signing/Discussion)

Dr. Sampson Davis will present his new book, 'Living and Dying in Brick City: An E.R. Doctor Returns Home," to the HU campus on February 20th from 4-6pm at the HUB.

About Dr. Davis:
Sampson Davis is best known as one of three friends from inner-city Newark who made a pact in high school to become doctors. Their book The Pact and their work through the Three Doctors Foundation have inspired countless young men and women to strive for goals they otherwise would not have dreamed they could attain. In this book, Dr. Davis looks at the healthcare crisis in the inner city from a rare perspective: as a doctor who works on the front line of emergency medical care in the community where he grew up, and as a member of that community who has faced the same challenges as the people he treats every day. He also offers invaluable practical advice for those living in such communities, where conditions like asthma, heart disease, stroke, obesity, and AIDS are disproportionately endemic.
