A Political and Literary Forum
About This Author
Robert A. Aronowitz is professor and chair of the department of history and sociology of science at the University of Pennsylvania. His most recent book is Risky Medicine: Our Quest to Cure Fear and Uncertainty (2015).
The era of personalized and precision medicine has overpromised but underdelivered. In place of the hype, we need a more sober evaluation of the meaning of health and health care.
