Heart: Sandeep Jauhar with Danielle Ofri

The history and science behind our hardest working muscle.

The human heart has strong connotations to our emotions and is often thought to represent the core of our being. For centuries its workings seemed beyond our comprehension. Only recently have we overcome old taboos and developed scientific advancements that can change lives. In Heart: A History, cardiologist and author Sandeep Jauhar alternates between important historical episodes and his own practice, telling the colorful and little-known story of the doctors who risked their careers and the patients who risked their lives to know and heal our most vital organ.

Sandeep Jauhar, MD, PhD, director of the Heart Failure Program at Long Island Jewish Medical Center, will be in conversation with Danielle Ofri,  a physician at Bellevue Hospital and NYU School of Medicine and author What Patients Say, What Doctors Hear.
