Professor Ed Cohen: Author of “On Learning to Heal” (E75)

Ed Cohen - On Learning to Heal

Enjoy this interview with Professor Ed Cohen; diagnosed with Crohn’s disease at age 13, he has been living with IBD for over half a century. Crohn’s nearly killed him in his early 20s and the only outlook his doctors ever gave him was that the best he could hope for would be periods of remission.

Professor Cohen has spent his life in search of better health and is sharing what he’s learned over the years in his new book, “On Learning to Heal or, What Medicine Doesn’t Know.” He draws on his 50 years of living with Crohn’s disease to consider how Western medicine’s turn from an “art of healing” toward a “science of medicine” deeply affects both medical practitioners and their patients.
