Join Haider Warraich, MD  with moderator Suzanne Koven, MD, MFA primary care physician, Writer-in-Residence at Massachusetts General Hospital and author of Letter to a Young Female Physician discuss his personal history and why he wrote Song of Our Scars.

"In this insightful and humane book about pain, suffering and survival, Warraich once again braids history and personal history to confront questions both ancient and contemporary. It is a marvelous read.”―Dr. Siddhartha Mukherjee, author of The Emperor of All Maladies

“A wonderful exploration of the chronic pain conundrum – past and present – in all of its varied dimensions: biomedical, psychological, social, and economic. Warraich is truly a gifted storyteller.”―Dr. Damon Tweedy, author of Black Man in a White Coat

"As physician-author Haider Warraich aptly points out, ‘Almost everything we know about pain and how we treat it is wrong.’ His masterful new book is a unique, panoramic and deep view of pain, taking us through his personal experience, its history and evolution, the science, and the massive corporate corruption that undermined the opioid epidemic. An incredible book."―Dr. Eric Topol, author of Deep Medicine
