We will be discussing, Mountains Beyond Mountains, by Tracy Kidder. Read the book and come to the meeting!
In medical school, Paul Farmer found his life’s calling: to cure infectious diseases, and bring lifesaving tools of modern medicine to those who need them most. Tracy Kidder’s magnificent account shows how one person can make a difference in solving global health problems through a clear-eyed understanding of the interactions of politics, wealth, social systems, and disease. Profound and powerful, Farmer demonstrates his philosophy that “the only real nation is humanity”.
