Zackary (Sholem) Berger, M.D., Ph.D., is the author of the new book Making Sense of Medicine: Bridging the Gap between Doctor Guidelines and Patient Preferences (amzn.to/2kiKpLT). We reached him by phone in Baltimore, MD, to talk about his new book, primarily, and a few other things.
In memory of our cofound and cohost Hasia Segal o"h (see http://yiddishvoice.com/#announcements) we played one of Hasia's segments from our archives, an interview with Professor Rabbi Dovid Neiman (o"h). We'll be continuing to air segments from Hasia's radio archives in the coming weeks until our Shloyshim (Memorial) program, scheduled for Feb. 15, 2017.
Also: news report from Kol Israel in Jerusalem presented by Avremi Zaks.
Original broadcast date: Feb. 2, 2017. NOTE: The interview with Zackary (Sholem) Berger was repeated the following week, Feb. 9, 2017.
