Ep 82: Extra Extra, Dr. Cory Franklin Will Write All About It

Listen here

Ever wonder what your life would look like if you went to journalism school instead of medical school? Or the stories you’d have and people you’d meet if you were the Director of Medical Intensive Care at County Hospital for 25 years? Well, if you’re Dr. Cory Franklin, you’ve found a way to get the best of both worlds. You also happen to be the inspiration for Harrison Ford’s character in The Fugitive. 

Join Katherine for the next episode in our Literature in Medicine series, where we interview Dr. Cory Franklin, current Editorial Board contributor to the Chicago Tribune. Author of three books: Cook County ICU: 30 Years of Unforgettable Patients and Odd Cases, The Doctor Will See You Now: Essays on Changing the Practice of Medicine, and Chicago Flashbulbs: A Quarter Century of News, Politics, Sports, and Show Business (1987-2012). And obituary advocate.
