Daniel Hurley | Clinton School Presents

Interview with Daniel Hurley for NPR affiliate KUAR on Clinton School Presents, a weekly dialogue of distinguished guests that visit the Clinton School of Public Service in Little Rock, Arkansas. Nikolai DiPippa, Clinton School Director of Public Programs, sat down with medical journalist, Daniel Hurley, to discuss his book, "Diabetes Rising," about the growth of the once-rare disease into a modern pandemic. With 23 million people in America diagnosed with Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes, Hurley explores the causes of this dramatic rise and asks why more attention isn’t focused on curing and preventing the disease. During his 20-year career as a medical journalist, Hurley has written for The New York Times, Men’s Health, Psychology Today and a number of physician newspapers.
