Dr. Azra Raza: Writing about Cancer Using Scholarship & Empathy

A public lecture series from Creative Nonfiction explores Science As Story: writing at the intersection of knowledge and narrative, showcasing how narrative helps us understand and appreciate the sciences' impact on our daily lives. In her book, The First Cell: And the Human Costs of Pursuing Cancer to the Last, Dr. Raza gives a searing account of the current state of cancer and its impacts on real people, including herself. With a mixture of scholarship and empathy, hope and despair, Raza examines how both medicine and our society mistreats cancer, how we can do better, and why we must.
