Speaker: Ricardo Nuila

Ricardo Nuila is a writer and an associate professor of medicine at Baylor College of Medicine. For the past thirteen years, he has worked as a hospitalist and attending at Houston's largest safety net facility, Ben Taub Hospital. Ricardo's essays and articles on health disparities have been featured in The New Yorker, The New York Times, Texas Monthly, The Atlantic, and The New England Journal of Medicine. Fictional works have appeared in The Best American Short Stories anthology, Guernica, and McSweeney's. He is the director of the Humanities Expression and Arts Lab (HEAL) at Baylor, which integrates arts and humanities into medical education and has received a Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) grant supporting its work. His first book, The People's Hospital: Hope and Peril in American Medicine was featured on NPR's Fresh Air with Terry Gross. In its review, The New York Times notes that Ricardo is a "skillful writer who humanizes his points in meticulous and compassionate detail through focusing primarily on the stories of five Ben Taub patients."
