UCSF Bioethics: Book Launch Event
September 15, 4:00-5:00pm

UCSF Bioethics is thrilled to announce the book launch of The Clozapine Clinic: Health Agency in High-Risk Conditions, recently published by UCSF Bioethics postdoctoral scholar, Julia Brown, PhD.

This book is the first ethnography of the little-known world of clozapine clinics in Australia and the United Kingdom. In it, Dr. Brown engages with the narratives of people living in extreme health circumstances to challenge some of the assumptions made about clozapine treatment and to explore what it means to be diagnosed with ‘treatment-resistant schizophrenia.’

To celebrate the publication of this book, UCSF Bioethics joins with the UCSF Department of Humanities & Social Science to host book launch on September 15th from 4:00-5:00pm at the Mission Bay Campus of UCSF. The event will feature a conversation between Dr. Brown and David Elkin, MD, Professor of Psychiatry at UCSF, followed by a reception. Please RSVP.
