DR NEIL SPECTOR - Survivor of Heart disease caused by Lyme Disease TEDx talk
Published on May 18, 2016
Imagine that Personalized Medicine is anything but personal, where healthcare is delivered according to apps and algorithms, relegating the Art of Medicine obsolete. Dr. Spector remains a strong proponent of Personalized Medicine but not at the expense of losing the valued practice of medicine as an art rather than an exact science.
Dr. Neil Spector is the author of “Gone in a Heartbeat: A Physician’s Search for True Healing.” Neil Spector, MD, is also the Sandra Coates Associate Professor of Medicine, and Associate Professor of Pharmacology and Cancer Biology at Duke University School of Medicine. He is also the Director of the Developmental Therapeutics at the Duke Cancer Institute. In addition, Dr. Spector is on the Advisory Boards for the Bay Area Lyme Foundation, Global Lyme Alliance and the Dean Center for Lyme Disease Rehab at the Spaulding Rehab Hospital, Harvard Medical School. After attending medical school and fulfilling his internal medicine residency a the University of Texas-Southwestern Medical Center, Dr. Spector completed his hematology medical oncology training at Massachusetts General Hospital and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Harvard Medical School.
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more athttp://ted.com/tedx
