Two MCW physicians, K. Jane Lee and Bruce Campbell, will publish books with Ten16 Press this September. Both books are avialable NOW for preorder.

K Jane Lee's Catastrophic Rupture: "As a pediatric critical care physician and an ethicist, Jane Lee was accustomed to caring for children with a range of serious conditions and disabilities, and felt comfortable helping families navigate decision-making for these children. When a complicated delivery left her second child with a severe brain injury, she found that everything she had learned about disability and personhood as a physician and ethicist was no help as a parent."

Bruce Campbell's A Fullness of Uncertain Significance: "When Dr. Bruce H. Campbell first set foot in a hospital as a seventeen-year old nursing assistant, he observed the best and the worst of doctors, hospitals, and the entire health care team. These lessons returned to him and shaped his own journey as he became a surgeon. Through these well-crafted,poignant, sometimes funny, and always insightful stories, he shares what his patients and their families shared, having never forgotten what it felt like to be a beginner."

This is a wonderful adventure for us! Hope you will attend the launch parties in September. Details to come.
