Recommended books!

Hey Globemedders!  Interested in learning more about Global Health, outside of our awesome weekly Global Health U sessions?  Check out these two incredible books.  

Cutting for Stone is a novel written by Abraham Verghese, an Ethiopian born medical doctor and author.  It is a saga of twin brothers, who became orphans due to their mother's death in childbirth and their father's disappearance.   An unforgettable journey into one man's remarkable life, it is an epic story about the power, intimacy, and curious beauty of the work of healing others.
This book might be a special interest to premeds!

Sizwe's Test: A Young Man's Journey Through Africa's AIDS Epidemic, written by Jonny Steinberg, explores the AIDS epidemic in Africa, especially on stigma against the disease and how it can hinder access to treatment.  If you are interested in HIV/AIDS, look into this book during your spare time!
