Monday, November 16, 2015 at 6 pm

Doors open at 5:15 pm

It’s chutzpah that has helped me to succeed – some of it is European, some, my Jewish upbringing, and some, the American spirit. – Dr. Ruth Westheimer

Join Dr. Ruth as she shares her incredible story of survival and success, from fleeing Nazi Germany as a young girl to serving as a sharpshooter in the Haganah (Israel’s Freedom Fighters) to becoming the pioneering psychosexual therapist, educator, and cultural icon adored and respected around the world today. Learn firsthand how her background, identity, fearlessness, and tenacity inform her work and have helped her to achieve success through helping others.

Moderated by WHYY’s Behavioral Health Reporter and Host of The PulseMaiken Scott.

Dr. Ruth’s new book, The Doctor Is In: Dr. Ruth on Love, Life, and Joie de Vivre (June 2015), will be available for sale and signing at the program.
