Shared experiences draw people together. That is why we are continuing the One Book, One Community (OBOC) program for its 10th year. Everyone in the school is invited to join together in reading and discussing Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City by Matthew Desmond.
One Book One Community, the Global Health Student Association, and the Center for Global Health present the powerful 30-minute documentary Close to Home: Street Medicine which shares voices of service providers and oft-forgotten homeless patients in our region. Catch the film and hear directly from:
