Join us to discuss the sixth book we are reading this summer, The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down by Anne Fadiman
Fadiman tells the story of a family whose daughter is diagnosed with a severe form of epilepsy. However, due to culture, mistrust, misdiagnosis, and miscommunication prevents the patient from receiving proper medical care. The book highlights the importance of cultural competence and the importance of the language shared between doctors and patients.
We look forward to a lively and engaging discussion. Participation is required.
