PRE-RELEASE BOOK EVENT

After becoming the 19th Surgeon General of the United States, one of the first things on Dr. Vivek Murthy’s agenda was to spend the first few months on a listening tour of the United States. What he didn’t expect to discover was that loneliness would emerge as a major public health concern--a root cause and contributor to many of the epidemics sweeping the world today, from alcohol and drug addiction to violence to depression and anxiety.

 

In his groundbreaking book, Murthy argues that loneliness is affecting not only our health but also how our children experience school, how we perform in the workplace, and the sense of division and polarization in our society. Loneliness was something so many people have known themselves or have seen in the people around them. It’s a universal condition that affects all of us directly or through the people we love.

Told with great compassion and hope, TOGETHER makes a powerful, urgent and convincing argument for why we can and must build a more connected world.
