When eminent physician and writer Abraham Verghese was awarded the National Humanities Medal by President Obama, he was praised both for his efforts to emphasise empathy in his medical practice and in his esteemed fiction writing.

He joins Paula Morris in conversation about his remarkable career and writing.
