Jay Baruch

An emergency physician and faculty member at Brown Medical School, Jay Baruch has long been fascinated by how illness can make people strangers to their own bodies, how we all struggle to maintain control as the body decays and life slowly becomes unrecognizable, and how health professionals discover and struggle with the limits of their own competence and compassion.  He is the author of Fourteen Stories, a collection of short fiction exploring the experiences of doctors and patients.
