ABOUT DAVID HELLERSTEIN
A fifth-generation doctor, David Hellerstein's writing has focused on medicine and literature...on the experiences of becoming a doctor, on the ways in which medicine has changed over the past 100 years, on the interactions between humanity and technology that occur in the hospital and the clinic.

His published books include
: Battles of Life and Death, (essays), Loving Touches (novel), and A Family of Doctors (memoir). He has won awards including the Pushcart Prize Best Essay Award, the David McCord Essay Prize, and several MacDowell Colony Fellowships.  He is also a psychiatrist, chief of the outpatient psychiatry division at Beth Israel Medical Center.
