How to get there


Prevention Institute, in partnership with the Center for Care Innovations, Public Health Institute, UCSF's Institute for Physician Leadership and HealthBegins, is pleased to welcome Dr. Rishi Manchanda on July 15th in celebration of the new TED Book, The Upstream Doctors.

A compelling blend of stories and analysis, The Upstream Doctors offers a vision of the future of health care - one that depends on growing a new generation of health care practitioners who look upstream for the social and environmental sources of our problems, rather than simply go for quick-hit symptomatic relief. If our high-cost, sick-care system is to become a high-value, health care system, these 'upstreamists', as Manchanda calls them, will show us the way. With a rousing afterword by Paul Farmer and early praise from leaders in healthcare and public health, Rishi Manchanda’s The Upstream Doctors has been called 'compulsory reading' for anyone concerned about the future of medicine, prevention, and the social determinants of health. The book has quickly become one of Amazon's best selling Kindle Singles.

Meet Dr. Rishi Manchanda on Monday, July 15 at 4pm, and join us in discussion about The Upstream Doctors. RSVP today as space is limited. The first fifty to RSVP and attend this book event will receive a free copy of the e-book. Light refreshments will be served.
