Dr. Lee Hood Writes ‘Second Opinion’ Columns for Los Angeles Times
ISB Co-founder, Chief Strategy Officer and Professor Dr. Lee Hood is credited with coining the term “systems biology,” and has been a longtime advocate of P4 medicine (predictive, preventive, personalized and participatory).
Now, Hood has been selected by the Los Angeles Times to share his insights in a new weekly op-ed column, called Second Opinion.
The column “aims to engage cutting-edge debates about the unprecedented global challenges that our society faces” and “will feature contributions from thought leaders, scientists, diplomats, humanitarians, artists, economists, and other experts who will offer their insights into these challenges, in an effort to identify solutions and actions to solve them,” said Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong, executive chairman of the L.A. Times, in an article announcing the weekly column.
Hood has penned two columns, and more are in the works. The Second Opinion columns are published in print in Sunday Los Angeles Times newspapers and appear on latimes.com. They are also syndicated by Yahoo News and many other outlets. Prior to the launch of Second Opinion, Hood and author Matthew LaPlante wrote an op-ed for the Los Angeles Times.
