In his new book, 'Together: The Healing Power of Human Connection in a Sometimes Lonely World' (pub. April 2020), Dr. Murthy warns of the dangers of loneliness and the lasting impact it can have on our health.

Now more than ever, loneliness is a growing public health concern as communities continue to require social distancing and self-isolation to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Because humans are social creatures, at the center of our loneliness is our innate desire to connect, forge lasting bonds, help one another, and share life experiences.

Dr. Murthy will be joined by Dr. Lucy Kalanithi for a poignant conversation on his four key strategies to weather this epidemic during this difficult time and beyond. Dr. Murthy was appointed by President Barack Obama and served as the 19th surgeon general of the United States.
