Speaking Topics
  • The Emperor Has No Clothes- the Immunotherapy Breakthrough in Cancer Treatment

    For the first time in history, physicians can responsibly use the C word when talking about Cancer: cure.

    In this engaging and exciting presentation, the New York Times bestselling author of "The Breakthrough" gives us the surprising story of how our basic misunderstanding of the immune system led to a century of misdirection on how to think about cancer and the recent scientific breakthrough that changed everything.

    We will address questions such as:

    • What is immunotherapy and how does it differ from traditional cancer treatments?
    • How can our natural immune system be helped to defeat cancer?
    • How have modern advancements in immunotherapy, such as checkpoint inhibitors and CAR-T cell therapy, revolutionized cancer treatment?
    • What's possible now, and what might we expect in our lifetimes?

    For over 100 years, physicians believed that cancer was unlike all other diseases, an "emperor of all maladies" that could only be attacked through "cut poison burn" approaches that aimed to kill the disease without killing the patient in the process. Now, recent discoveries have given us fascinating new insights on the complex system of spies and garbagemen, signalers and helpers, flag bearers and killers that make up our natural immune systems, and finally allowed us to help that natural defense system to recognize, attack and kill cancer cells, the way it does other diseases. We've discovered the tricks cancer uses to evade or shut down our immune armies and a means to block these tricks and "secret handshakes," which has transformed science and changed the direction of researchers and the outcomes of millions of cancer patients. From 19th-century unexplained anecdotes about spontaneous cures to Nobel prize-winning surprise discoveries, we'll explore how the bumpy past history of immunotherapy research is now yielding a new scientific understanding of both disease and ourselves and reshaping the future of treatment. Join us for an all-access ride through this pivotal moment in medical history.

  • Stopping The "Good Nurse"

    A frank, personal presentation by Charles Graeber, the author of the New York Times bestselling book "The Good Nurse" and the only journalist whom the infamous "Angel of Death"• serial killer Charles Cullen• would speak to after his arrest.

    Graeber's presentation engages questions such as:

    • How did Charles Cullen manage to evade detection for 16 years despite having over 400 victims?
    • What were the loopholes in hospital systems that enabled Cullen to continue his career despite being fired or let go from over 9 hospitals?
    • Did hospital administrators have any warning signs of Cullen's behavior?
    • What regulatory changes or reforms are necessary to hold hospital administrators accountable for the actions of healthcare professionals like Cullen?
    • How can the healthcare industry implement measures to prevent future occurrences of nurse serial killers and ensure patient safety?

    Through more than 7 years of reporting and conversations with detectives, nurses, whistleblowers, family members, and dozens of secret jailhouse sessions with the killer themselves, Graeber finally uncovered the true story of how a rogue nurse managed to game the healthcare system and kill hundreds of innocent patients. This presentation can be customized for different audiences, as it has been in the past for healthcare professionals, attorneys and prosecutors, students, nurses, and true crime enthusiasts.
