Product description


"MedPage Today found that since launching Celebrity Diagnosis on our site, page views have risen faster than any other blog we carry. We believe it's because celebrities attract attention as a jump-off point to educate. You have found a unique niche." —Robert Stern, Advisory Board, Everyday Health, former CEO, MedPage Today

"As an educator striving to effectively convey key points in a lecture, including a celebrity facet with other examples makes it easier for our students, trainees, and faculty to work through very complex concepts in a fun way. Celebrity Diagnosis provides credible information about health conditions and diagnoses for many popular figures today. I am able to use the resource in a professional capacity within the library as well in my courses and workshops on various topics related to genomic medicine and biomedical research." ––Kristi L. Holmes, PhD, Director, Galter Health Sciences Library at Northwestern University, Feinberg School of Medicine

"Media coverage of celebrities contains little material that conveys useful health information. This is a missed opportunity that can and should be addressed." Dr. Katherine Smith, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health

"Thank you for sharing the relationship between celebrity health conditions, consumer Internet search behavior, and its potential for developing teachable moments for the advancement of public health." Nan M. Laird, PhD, Harvey V. Fineberg, Professor of Biostatistics, Harvard School of Public Health

"The illnesses of famous patients receive enormous attention from the media and serve as touchstones for patients and families dealing with similar conditions. They also can help vulnerable patients avoid being tricked by hoaxes, such as the unorthodox anticancer regimen that may have even accelerated Steve McQueen's death from mesothelioma. By taking a series of famous cancer cases and looking at the actual information being received by the public, Doctors Boguski and Berman are furthering the important process of ascertaining exactly what these episodes teach us." —Barron H. Lerner, MD, PhD, Professor of Medicine and Public Health, New York Presbyterian, The University Hospital of Columbia and Cornell, author, When Illness Goes Public: Celebrity Patients and How We Look at Medicine --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
