Archive: New York Times Bestselling Author, Ben Mezrich, Visits UW Surgery

On April 24th, UW Surgery welcomed Ben Mezrich, bestselling author and brother of UW Transplant Surgeon Joshua D Mezrich, MD, for a special Surgery Grand Rounds.

Mr. Mezrich signed books at our Health Sciences Learning Center the evening before his presentation which was titled “From Bringing Down the House to the Social Network: Sometimes Truth Really is Stranger Than Fiction”.

You can view his uncut, laugh-inducing, thought provoking and entertaining lecture here. We must admit, many “firsts” were made during this not so Surgery Grand Rounds, and we were all so pleased to be a part of it! Favorite pearl from Mr. Mezrich? “Rejection inspires you…you have to fully believe that no matter what you do, it’s going to happen for you.”
