Yakima Town Hall Speaker Series Presents, Dr. David Agus

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, WA.- The Yakima Town Hall Speaker Series brings in world renowned speakers, from Olympic gold medalists to Pulitzer Prize winners. Wednesday's speaker, Dr. David Agus, is one of the world's leading cancer doctors, he was Steve Job's doctor during his battle with cancer.


We sat down with Dr. Agus that afternoon, he shared with us his journey through medicine and the struggles he's encountered along the way. He frequently appears on CBS news as a news contributor, he told us one of his goals is to help do away with many of the health misconceptions and myths that plague people in today's world.

He says he sticks to the hard evidence and data in medicine, "I want them to examine all that they do in their lives, they are in charge of their own health. The notion that you go to your doctor and you say well he or she said this, forget that you're in charge of you. My job is to show you that looking at the data for yourself isn't as hard as you think."


Dr Agus talks more about this notion of stepping away from classic medicine in his New York Times best seller "The End of Illness".
