Community Discussions in Social Justice 2016: Black Man in a White Coat: Join the Conversation

Conversation is the heart of Community Discussions in Social Justice. The Briscoe Library will offer two workshops on March 29, 2016 in the Howe Conference Room to support discussion group leaders and to encourage dialogue about the book. To facilitate attendance, these events will be held at both 12 Noon and at 5:30 PM. They are open to faculty, staff, and students of the UT Health Science Center San Antonio, as well as members of the broader community, who are interested in planning a book discussion opportunity.

Book discussions will be held throughout April, leading up to Dr. Damon Tweedy’s visit to campus on April 19, 2016. Details about book discussion groups can be posted to this page by submitting the Discussion Group Registration form. Please be sure to print out a Discussion Group Sign-In Sheet and e-mail the completed form to Lisa Matye Finnie. These sign-in sheets are an important part of the evaluation and reporting process for Community Discussions in Social Justice. In addition, A Reader’s Guide with suggested questions for discussion is available to help get the conversation going!
