    NorCal Book Night: Bad Blood by John Carreyrou

    Theranos said it would change the way blood testing worked—it raised over a billion dollars on that promise. But in his new book, John Carreyrou uncovers that Theranos’s greatest innovation was a technology as old as time: lying.

    Sound interesting? Yes! Join us to talk about one of the hottest non-fiction works around.

    We have three confirmed gathering locations in San Francisco, North Oakland, and San Mateo. To attend a November 11 meeting, visit https://yw-booknight-badblood.eventbrite.com to RSVP. Registration will close on Friday, November 9 at 8 PM.

    **** Founded in 2011, YaleWomen is a community of alums – at the global and chapter levels – across Yale College and the Graduate & Professional Schools, and across years, geography and personal and professional interests as well as a broad range of different experiences, perspectives, and opinions. As part of its mission, YaleWomen is committed to advancing women’s voices and perspectives. YaleWomen encourages its members at the global, national, and local levels to advance the issues they believe in by engaging in the public policy and electoral process, advocating for changes in particular areas of society, and providing education about such matters. As a 501c3, YaleWomen must do so within the constraints imposed by IRS rules regarding prohibiting lobbying, advocacy, and partisan activity. One of YaleWomen’s greatest strengths is inclusivity – bringing together and learning from the plurality of our voices, in ways that are both respectful and civil. Inclusivity is, in fact, one of YaleWomen’s core values. The plurality of voices – Yale women alums’ voices – produces democracy! ****
