The nonprofit group PatientsRWaiting works to eliminate health disparities by increasing diversity in medicine.
One of their initiatives is the “What the Health?” virtual book club aimed at raising awareness regarding health equity. With a virtual meeting the last Wednesday of every month, they bring together a diverse group of people with new perspectives.
Visit What-the-Health Book Club for more information and to join an event.
Here are the Summer 2020 titles up for discussion:
At present, Ascension Wisconsin Library Services does not own or offer access to any of these titles. Since we are working from home for the duration of the pandemic, we are not circulating print books simply because we are not on site to manage the physical process or infection prevention measures related to circulating print material.
If you are interested in participating in these virtual book discussions, please purchase your own copies of the books. Or try your local public library who may have digital copies available to lend.
Although we don't own these books, we certainly encourage the discussions around health equity.
