Editorial Reviews

Review

"Rishi Manchanda’s TED Book about upstreamists breaks a lot of new ground. His is a novel and compelling vision that moves prevention front and center in medical care by moving the doctor upstream — upstream to where the problems begin and where a little insight and foresight can convert an oncoming medical disaster into a preventable problem."
— Fitzhugh Mullan, MD , Murdock Head Professor of Medicine and Health Policy, George Washington University School of Public Health, and Clinical Professor of Pediatrics at the George Washington University School of Medicine

"This book is fabulous. As an upstreamist, Dr. Manchanda knows that without addressing the social ills that are the source (the upstream causes) of the patients' medical problems, those problems will never be adequately solved. In his book, and in his work, Dr. Manchanda presents an uplifting and necessary journey for any of us who think narrowly as downstreamists."
— Thomas S. Bodenheimer, MD, MPH professor, Department of Family and Community Medicine, and director, Center for Excellence in Primary Care, University of California at San Francisco
