Book Review of IN SICKNESS AS IN HEALTH by Paul Levy



I'm writing to share with you a review by Paul Levy of our book: IN SICKNESS AS IN HEALTH: Helping Couples Cope with the Complexities of Illness

Paul is a well known health care blogger and a stalwart advocate for patient-centered care.  He was CEO of one of the major Harvard teaching hospitals in Boston, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.
  

To read Paul's review of IN SICKNESS AS IN HEALTH, go to his excellent blog, Not Running a Hospital


Here is Paul's concluding paragraph:

So, how ironic and telling that a book designed to help couples is also an advisory to doctors who serve for and care for those couples!  My advice is that this book should be read by physicians as well as those of us who might need it for our families.


I hope you enjoy his post.  If you like it, please feel free to forward, tweet, or otherwise share it with your own networks.  We are on a mission to get the word out that if you're part of a couple, the illness may reside on one person's body, but its two lives that are dislocated and two will that can be enlisted to deal with the upheavals illness introduces into the relationship.
 
Thank you.
