TED Books are short original electronic books produced by TED Conferences. Like the best TED Talks, they’re personal and provocative, and designed to spread great ideas. I was honored to have one of my illustration used as cover art for this eye-opening book written by Rishi Manchanda titled The Upstream Doctors: Medical Innovators Track Sickness to Its Source.
Physician Rishi Manchanda says that our health may depend even more on our social and environmental settings than it does on our most cutting-edge medical care. Manchanda argues that that the future of our health care depends on growing a new generation of health care practitioners. We need doctors who look upstream for the sources of our problems, rather than simply go for quick-hit symptomatic relief.
The Illustration is one of many from my personal project Surrealism and Illusion.
