A Morning with Abraham Verghese, M.D.
This is thesecondopinion's 6th Annual Breakfast Speaker Benefit. For this major fundraiser to be a success, we need you to join us!
Dr. Verghese is a wonderful speaker and his new novel is amazing. You will get a copy of "The Covenant of Water" with your ticket purchase.
All funds raised from the event will be used to provide free, comprehensive second opinions to cancer patients and their family members.
The Covenant of Water - A shimmering evocation of a lost India and of the passage of time itself, The Covenant of Water is a hymn to progress in medicine and to human understanding, and a humbling testament to the hardships undergone by past generations for the sake of those alive today. It is one of the most masterful literary novels published in recent years.
