Slow Medicine: Victoria Sweet with Angie Coiro
Presented by Kepler's Literary Foundation

Today, robots can perform surgery, x-rays can be conducted instantaneously, and countless tests, once unimaginable to doctors, can be executed to learn diagnoses often before symptoms are even apparent. This is truly a golden age of technological medical wonders. But at what cost?

For all these technological wonders, it can hard to remember that physicians were once craftsman. Victoria Sweet, a physician at Laguna Honda Hospital for over twenty years, wants to fix this.

Join Sweet as she sits down with Angie Coiro to share just how much the medical industry has changed over the years. With Slow Medicine, Sweet offers a revelatory personal vision for what a physician can and should be.

Discover what the future of the doctor/patient relationship ought to be. In Sweet's iconoclastic philosophy of medicine, healthcare should not replace medicine; providers should spend more time with their patients than with their laptops; soaring costs and the ruthless pursuit of efficiency should be replaced by carefully executed and reasonably priced procedures. Don't miss this important evening on what we can do to bring the craft of medicine back to the doctor's office.

Kepler's Literary Foundation is a non-profit project of the Silicon Valley Community Foundation dedicated to enriching the community through literary and cultural programs featuring notable writers, artists and original thinkers.
