Program Description

Event Details

Relentless tells the compelling story of how one of America’s leading health care systems—the Mount Sinai Health System—mobilized science, medicine and the human spirit to confront the Covid-19 pandemic, which struck New York City and Westchester County early and hard. Journalist and novelist Deborah Schupack interviewed more than 100 frontline clinicians, scientists, staff and patients for a behind-the-scenes narrative that is heartbreaking, heroic, and hopeful—from the bursting-at-the-seams emergency rooms and rapidly reconfigured ICUs to the busy research laboratories sleuthing the virus’s secrets, and all the life-or-death decision-making in between.

Deborah Schupack is a Westchester County-based novelist and health care journalist who has written extensively about the intersection of science and medicine. She is the author of two novels, Sylvan Street and The Boy on the Bus, and her articles have appeared in academic publications and in national newspapers and magazines.
