Just over a month ago, the Biomedical Library featured Dr. Paul Offit for a discussion of his recent book, Bad Advice. It was such a successful event that we immediately decided to do it again – especially since there are so many incredibly talented and important authors in the health sciences communities our library serves.
One particular title seemed a very obvious choice for our next event, when the School of Nursing proudly announced that Cynthia Connolly, PhD, RN, FAAN, had been awarded the American Public Health Association’s prestigious Arthur J. Viseltear Prize for outstanding contributions to the history of public health, following the publication of her newest book, Children and Drug Safety: Balancing Risk and Protection in Twentieth-Century America.
Please join us at 3 PM on Thursday, December 6th in the Biomedical Library for an informal reading and discussion of this award-winning work (register at this link– requested but not required). Light refreshments will be served.
To learn more about the book, click here to read a review published in Penn Today, which includes an audio clip of a reading by Dr. Connolly. Children and Drug Safety is available to current Penn faculty, staff and students through Penn Libraries as an ebook.
And you may want to save the date for our next scheduled book talk: On Thursday January 23rd at 3 PM in the Biomedical Library, Connie Ulrich, PhD, MSN, RN, FAAN, one of the country’s leading nursing ethicists- and the first nurse ever appointed to a position in bioethics at Penn- will talk about her recent book, Moral Distress in the Health Professions.
