Mountains Beyond Mountains: The Quest of Dr. Paul Farmer, a Man Who Would Cure the World (2003), by Tracy Kidder
We think this book about Dr. Paul Farmer will help create rich, humane, interdisciplinary conversation around the issues of public health in poor communities where social and political strategies interface with biological and health issues.
To join this book discussion, please email Stephanie Ewing (spenning@Carleton.edu), administrative assistant for CISMI. She will contact participants when books are ready to be picked up at the Carleton bookstore. Books are free to all participants who sign up. Discussion times are above.
Cosponsors are the Carleton Interdisciplinary Science and Math Initiative (CISMI) and the Perlman Center for Learning and Teaching (LTC), with support from the Mellon Faculty Life Cycles grant and Carleton's Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) grant.
