On Sunday, June 24th at 3pm we will welcome author Jim Bailey to the store. Dr. Bailey will be leading a panel of health care experts including Dr. Paula Houston, Director of Healthcare Equity for UW Medicine, and Dr. Tom Staiger, Medical Director of the University of Washington Medical Center, in a discussion about what is really happening in health reform. They will share stories and discuss the main ways Americans can demand and get health care that truly heals.
Dr. Bailey's new book, The End of Healing, tells the story of a young doctor's journey through the healthcare underworld to confront his own demons, uncover the roots of corruption in American medicine, and find true healing. This novel will share unique insight and change your perspective on the U.S. medical system.
Jim Bailey pulls back the exam room curtain to reveal a giant healthcare industry spiraling out of control. This literary tour de force resonates with core themes of classical literature, medical history, and science. The End of Healing gives voice to victims of our dysfunctional healthcare system and those launching a national movement to reclaim health care that heals.

His research appears in many peer-reviewed medical journals, including JAMA, Journal of General Internal Medicine, and Annals of Internal Medicine. Dr. Bailey has an abiding passion for the classics, medical history, and ethics, and believes that sharing our stories can heal.
