When it comes to navigating the waters of our own medical care, "we are drowning in information, while starving for wisdom." That's how doctors Jerome Groopman and Pamela Hartzband begin their latest book, "Your Medical Mind — How to Decide What is Right For You."

Groopman is an oncologist. He's also a staff writer for The New Yorker and the author of four books, including "How Doctors Think." Hartzband is an endocrinologist. Both are on the faculty of the Harvard Medical School and on staff at the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center here in Boston.

Guests:

  • Jerome Groopman, MD, professor of medicine, Harvard Medical School; chief of experimental medicine, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center
  • Pamela Hartzband, MD, professor, Harvard Medical School; endocrinologist, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center
