This timely book examines the history of technology, the history of medicine, and the politics and economies of American healthcare. Greene explores the role that electronic media play, for better and for worse, in the past, present, and future of our health.
Dr. Jeremy Greene is broadly interested in the history of disease, and his research explores the ways in which medical technologies come to influence our understandings of what it means to be sick or healthy, normal or abnormal. His broader research interests focus on the history of disease, medical technology, the history of global health, and the relationship between medicine and the marketplace. Dr. Greene received an MD and PhD in the history of science from Harvard in 2005, completed a residency in Internal Medicine at the Brigham & Women’s Hospital in 2008, and is board certified in Internal Medicine and a member of the American College of Physicians.
