Alice Dreger on Conjoined Twins

January 14, 2007

Alice Dreger is on the faculty of the Medical Humanities and Bioethics Program of Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine. She’s the author of “One of Us: Conjoined Twins and the Future of Normal.”  Dreger tells Jim Fleming that conjoined twins usually see themselves as individuals, but view being joined as a positive thing. In fact, separated twins have many more health complications.
