Description: On May 11, the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH) will hold the annual Stephen E. Straus Distinguished Lecture in the Science of Complementary Health Therapies. Speakers, Jerome Groopman, M.D., the Dina and Raphael Recanati chair of medicine at Harvard Medical School and chief of experimental medicine at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Pamela Hartzband, M.D., assistant professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School and attending physician in the division of endocrinology at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center will present “When Experts Disagree: The Art of Medical Decision Making.” The husband-and-wife team will present a new way to make the best medical decisions. They reveal that each of us has a “medical mind,” a highly individual approach to weighing the risks and benefits of treatment. To ascertain our unique medical minds, they will present probing questions. Are you a minimalist or a maximalist, a believer or a doubter, do you look for natural healing or the latest technology? Drs. Groopman and Hartzband explain how pitfalls in thinking and the way statistics are presented in pharmaceutical advertisements, the news media and even scientific reports can mislead all of us. The talk will demonstrate the contrast between the role of population guidelines with the care of the individual, and explain the complexities of end of life care – all factors that contribute to a person’s “medical mind.” In their talk, Drs. Groopman and Hartzband will weave vivid narratives from real patient experiences with insights from recent cognitive research to demonstrate how to arrive at choices that serve the individual best. Dr. Groopman’s research interests include studying how viruses cause immune deficiency and cancer, the role of endocannabinoids in hematopoiesis, mechanisms of liver injury due to hepatitis c, and the effects of novel cell cycle inhibitors against mantle cell lymphoma. He has been integral in developing many AIDS-related therapies. Dr. Hartzband’s clinical interests include thyroid disorders, adrenal and pituitary disorders, osteoporosis, and calcium disorders. Together, Drs. Groopman and Hartzband co-authored the book “How Doctors Think” and write a monthly column for the American College of Physicians’ publication “ACP Internist.” The lecture series was established in honor of Stephen E. Straus, M.D., founding director of NCCAM and an internationally recognized clinician-scientist. Under his leadership, research of complementary health therapies grew threefold. In addition to serving as NCCAM director, Dr. Straus was senior investigator in the Laboratory of Clinical Investigation at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. This event is supported by the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health with generous funding from Bernard and Barbro Osher. The lecture begins at 10 a.m. in Masur Auditorium, Building 10. All are invited to attend. It will also be videocast on http://videocast.nih.gov
