On Saturday, May 17th at 4
PM, Carmichael's welcomes Dr. Michael Saag
for a discussion and signing of his new book Positive : One Doctor's Personal Encounters with Death, Life, and the U.S. Health System. Saag began his
medical residency in 1981, within days of the Centers for Disease
Control's first report of a mysterious "gay cancer" killing young men.
Soon, the young doctor's career was yoked to the epidemic. His life's
work became turning the most deadly virus in human history into a
chronic, manageable disease. "Positive" is Dr. Saag's tribute to the
unforgettable patients he has known and an urgent call to create a
comprehensive, compassionate, accessible healthcare system in the name
of those we can save today. Please join us for this very special event!
