A Chat with Dr. Lisa Rosenbaum, a National Correspondent for The New England Journal of Medicine
On this edition of StudioTulsa Medical Monday, we speak with Dr. Lisa Rosenbaum, who is a national correspondent for The New England Journal of Medicine. She joins us to talk about a three-part series of articles that she recently wrote for the Journal's Medicine & Society section; all three of these well-written, expertly researched pieces concern how we as a society -- and as medical professionals -- care for the mentally ill in the twenty-first century. The articles are entitled "Liberty vs. Need -- Our Struggle to Care for People with Serious Mental Illness," "Closing the Mortality Gap -- Mental Illness and Medical Care," and "Unlearning Our Helplessness -- Coexisting Serious Mental and Medical Illness."
