How Health Became the New Morality

How do our attitudes and judgments about what is healthy affect our actual health? We’ll talk this hour with Jonathan M. Metzl, Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Women’s Studies and Director of the Program in Culture, Health, and Medicine at the University of Michigan. He’s also the co-editor of the new collection “Against Health: How Health Became the New Morality” (NYU Press, 2010).
