Interested in Global Health, why not read an amazing book?
There are many awesome topics out there to read books about, ranging from sparkling vampires and wizards to military novels and even autobiographies of greats like Albert Einstein. Amidst all the options for a great book to read, there are a selection of books made for people like us, who are interested in global health and issues like access to medicines and medical technologies, today, I've decided to start a list of these books for anyone who is looking to read something of that nature. Here's what we have so far, thanks to one of our members. Please comment if you have any more suggestions to add to the list, as the more we can share, the more we can know and do. The list: Mountains beyond mountains- Tracy Kidder (about Dr. Paul Farmer) Better- Atul Gawande Complications- Atul Gawande End of Poverty- Jeffrey Sachs Race against Time- Stephen Lewis My Own Country- Abraham Verghese I plan on starting with Mountains Beyond Mountains personally... -Justin
