The second lecture in OSHER@Dartmouth's Summer Lecture Series focuses on race relations in our country. Dr. Damon Tweedy will address the topic Black Man in a White Coat on Thursday, July 19th, from 9:00 - 11:30 AM at Spaulding Auditorium, Hopkins Center, in Hanover, N.H.

Damon Tweedy, M.D., is Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Duke University and author of Black Man in a White Coat: A Doctor's Reflections On Race And Medicine. His book reached the NY Times bestseller list in 2015 and Time Magazine rated it among the "Top Ten Non-Fiction Books of 2015". He will pose the question: Is being black bad for your health? Dr. Tweedy will be available to sign copies of his book during intermission.
