KUMC News: Family Med faculty contribute chapters to A Waiting Room of One's Own, a book exploring women's health issues through art.
The KU Med Office of Cultural Enhancement and Diversity (OCED) Book Program "began in 2000 to exemplify our commitment to your highest educational and personal growth as medical students here in the School of Medicine. We want all student who join our family of learners to value and appreciate diversity, the impact of cultural differences on health and healthcare, and to remember to continue to pursue other aspects of themselves outside medicine and continue to read broadly. The books we have sent in the past were selected as stories about culture in general and the culture of medicine as practiced in America, and how they impact our patients’ health outcomes and the health experiences." A Waiting Room of One's Own was presented to newly admitted students.
