Travis Rieder, in conversation with Theresa Brown

Travis Rieder, PhD, Professor of Bioethics at Johns Hopkins University, is the author of In Pain: A Bioethicist's Personal Struggle with Opioids, an account of his personal struggle with opioid use following a serious injury, and an exposé of how these powerful drugs are often carelessly prescribed and poorly understood.

Curated by New York Times bestselling author Theresa Brown, RN, (author of Healing: When a Nurse Becomes a Patient) this new series features authors whose work explores inequities in the US healthcare system. Programs in the series include a brief reading from the author, a moderated conversation, an audience Q&A, and a book signing.
