Medicine professor to sign copies of newest book Feb. 26 at university bookstore

Donald HricikDonald Hricik, professor of medicine, chief of the Division of Nephrology and Hypertension and medical director of transplantation services at University Hospitals Case Medical Center, will sign copies of his newest book, Nothing to Confess, next week at the university bookstore.

Hricik is internationally known for his research in kidney transplantation. His novels are fictional stories based on some harsh realities in the world of academic medicine.

In Nothing to Confess, Lance Turner’s successful record of accomplishment as a donor coordinator for the Ohio Organ Bank is suddenly jeopardized when six of seven transplant patients simultaneously become ill within a month of receiving organs from a young, seemingly healthy, deceased donor. The series of lawsuits generated from these cases pose a threat not only to Lance’s career but also to public trust in the organ donation system and to the lives of thousands of patients awaiting organ transplants.

The signing will be Tuesday, Feb. 26, at 12:30 p.m. at the university bookstore. He also will sign copies of his last book, Racing to Pittsburgh.
