Jerome Lowenstein

Author of Henderson’s Equation

Dr. Jerome Lowenstein is the author of Henderson’s Equation, a book that is part biography and part medical fiction. Dr. Lowenstein’s interest in acid-base physiology and in the nature of relationships between physicians and patients made Harvard’s Lawrence J. Henderson an ideal subject for the study of the relationship between his own ideas and those of this seminal thinker in the realm of science and medicine.

Dr. Lowenstein’s career in academic medicine has been devoted to teaching, research and the care of patients. He is also the author of Acid and Basics, Oxford University Press, and The Midnight Meal and Other Essays About Doctors, Patients and Medicine, University of Michigan Press. Dr. Lowenstein is publisher of the Bellevue Literary Press and Editor for Nonfiction of the Bellevue Literary Review.
