Members of this University of Maryland Medical Center psychiatry resident-led book club read books across genres that explore issues of race as a means of better understanding ourselves, our patients, and our community. The mission is to foster a foundation for change by developing a forum for dialogue, education, and greater self-awareness. All members of the MPS community are invited to participate! So far, we have read:
- July: Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates
- August: Protest Psychosis by Jonathan Metzl
- September: Medical Apartheid by Harriet Washington
The December 13 meeting will feature All God’s Children Need Traveling Shoes by Maya Angelou.
