A fourth-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,
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.
In addition to running a large clinic, he does research on the treatment
of mood disorders, including chronic depression.
