Healing Politics : A Doctor's Journey Into the Heart of Our Political Epidemic
by Abdul El-Sayed and Ady Barkan




Overview -
From a rising voice in progressive politics, a combination of memoir and science diagnosing the biggest challenges facing America and laying out a way forward

The son of Egyptian immigrants, Abdul El-Sayed grew up feeling a pressing responsibility to help others. He threw himself into the study of medicine and public health and excelled--winning a Rhodes Scholarship, earning two doctoral degrees, and landing a tenure-track position at Columbia University. At 30, he became the youngest city health official in America, tasked with rebuilding Detroit's health department after years of austerity policies. But El-Sayed found himself disillusioned. He could heal the sick but not fix the social and economic conditions causing illness in the first place. So he left health for politics, running for governor of Michigan in 2018.
In Healing Politics, Abdul El-Sayed traces the life of a young idealist, weaving together powerful personal stories and fascinating forays into history and science. Marrying his unique perspective with the science of epidemiology, El-Sayed diagnoses an underlying epidemic afflicting our country, an epidemic of insecurity. And to heal the rifts this epidemic has created, he lays out a new direction for the progressive movement. This is a bold, personal, and compellingly original book from a prominent young leader.
