2012 Hancock Lecture

Julia Belluz, Who Lives & Who Dies Will Social Media Decide?

October 31, 2012, Hancock Lecture


Julia Belluz is Associate Editor at the Medical Post and a National Magazine Award-winning journalist covering health care, policy and medical politics. The lecture explores how social pressure influences our personal health choices, sometimes for the worst.

“In the last few years, we’ve seen cases where something as trivial as a tweet literally extends a person’s life, gets them access to medical care they wouldn’t have had otherwise, and changes health policy.”
–Julia Belluz
