Giving Thanks for a Place to Call Home with Abraham Verghese

Thursday, November 24, 2011

In honor of Thanksgiving, The Takeaway looks back at some of our favorite interviews from the past year and gives thanks. Our conversation with Dr. Abraham Verghese is among those we're especially grateful for. Verghese was raised in Ethiopia, by parents from India. He immigrated to the U.S. in the 1980s for a medical residency, and then to rural Tennessee treat gay men afflicted with HIV.  Later, he became a professor at Stanford University Medical School and the author of the best-sellers, "My Own Country" and "Cutting for Stone."
