Salt Lake City, Utah – Medical historian Holly Tucker says that the past is an excellent starting point for discussions about the future. Her new book "Blood Work" tells the story of a 17th century experiment in blood transfusion that became the focus of feverish ethical debate and led to a Parisian murder. Tucker is in Utah and she joins Doug to talk about the question she says still resonates today: how far are we willing to push the limits of medical science?
Wednesday, March 16 at 7:00 p.m., Holly Tucker will give a reading from her new book "Blood Work: A Tale of Medicine and Murder in the Scientific Revolution" at The King's English Bookshop in Salt Lake City. For details, click here or call 801-484-9100.
