Join composer/educator Marcus Shelby and Dr. Rupa Marya, MD, Associate Professor of Medicine at UCSF, co-founder of the Do No Harm Coalition, musician/composer, and co-author of the recently released book Inflamed: Deep Medicine and the Anatomy of Injustice, for an in-depth conversation and Q&A. Marcus will also share musical works-in-progress from his forthcoming suite “Blues in the City,” commissioned by Yerba Buena Gardens Festival.
