Dr. Boufford recommends Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer
As president of the New York Academy of Medicine, Dr. Jo Ivey Boufford's professional life revolves around health care. So it's no surprise that when she's not helping the organization address urban health challenges, she's reading about the field, too.
She's currently toting around The Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer, by Siddhartha Mukherjee, a book that explores cancer throughout history. “As a physician, it's interesting reading something so exposing,” she said. She's hoping to get a few pages in during her trip to Brazil for a conference.
Dr. Boufford is no stranger to the written word. She helped edit Urban Health: Global Perspectives, a textbook published in 2010, and the New York Academy of Medicine is home to one of the country's largest medical libraries.
