The purpose of a Common Book is to build bridges between experiences we share no matter what our field of scholarship or course of study. The Common Book program will include programming tied to the themes of the book. Our hope with this program is to engage the college community in larger discussions about relevant topics in healthcare. Those interested in participating will all read the same book and engage in meaningful dialog around the themes and content of that book.
