Library Issues Forum: Jessica Wapner, The Philadelphia Chromosome
Jessica Wapner is a freelance writer focused mainly on healthcare and medicine. Her work is published in The New York Times, Scientific American, Slate, Science, Nature Medicine, Ode, Psychology Today, and elsewhere. Her writing on cancer research and treatment also appears in the specialty magazines Oncology Business Review, Cure, and CR.
Her first book, “The Philadelphia Chromosome: A Mutant Gene and the Quest to Cure Cancer at the Genetic Level,” was published in Spring 2013 by The Experiment.
Previously, she was the founding managing editor of two review journals, Clinical Advances in Hematology & Oncology and Gastroenterology & Hepatology, and also served as editor for Oncology Spectrum. She lives in New York City with her husband and two children.
A turning point in our long and difficult history with cancer, The Philadelphia Chromosome is an inspiring story of what is possible when people, working alone and in concert, are driven to make sense of the unknown and improve the lives of others.

Through a generous sponsorship from AT&T the event is offered free of charge, but reservations are strongly recommended. For more information call (979) 691-4014 or email to email@example.com.
