Guest Bio: David Sklar, MD
Dr. David SklarFrom 1965 to 1968, David Sklar, MD, attended a prep school where he was the unwitting subject of a research study that attempted to link body type to leadership potential. This disturbing experience inspired Atlas of Men (Oct. 16, 2018). Sklar’s previous book, a memoir, explores his experience as a volunteer in a rural Mexican clinic prior to medical school and how it shaped his later career in healthcare. La Clinica was chosen as one of the Best Books of 2008.

An emergency physician, researcher, editor of a medical education journal, and a Professor of Medicine at both Arizona State University and the University of New Mexico, Sklar currently lives with his wife in Phoenix, Arizona.

Patients have to consent to participation in medical research. Risks and benefits should be explained so patients can decide to participate or not. Personal benefits from new medications or procedures and healthcare improvements for others can prompt one to join a trial.

Listen as Dr. David Sklar joins Dr. Holly Lucille to share his personal experience with consent.
