Dr. Blair Grubb, University of Toledo Distinguished University Professor of Cardiovascular Medicine and Pediatrics, will give a talk about his book, The Calling, Tuesday, April 19, at 3:30 p.m. in the Ward M. Canaday Center for Special Collections on the fifth floor of Carlson Library.

In the book, Grubb recounts stories of interactions with his patients that have stayed with him throughout his career, influenced him as a physician, and touched him as a person.



“He vividly depicts memorable encounters he has had in his calling as he strives to be a good healer and a good human being. The book presents a uniquely intimate view of what it means to be a physician,” Barbara Floyd, interim director of UT Libraries, said.

The book, published by the UT Press in 2011, was written with the encouragement of his late wife, Barbara Straus.

Copies will be available for sale at the event for a discounted price of $10. Grubb will be available after the talk to sign books.

The free, public event is part of UT Libraries’ celebration of National Library Week.
