A Summer Book Club for Health: Aligning Forces for Quality - South Central PA
Aligning Forces for Quality - South Central PA is encouraging health system literacy through a partnership with the Central Pennsylvania Library System and their local Public Broadcasting affiliate. Residents are invited to visit local libraries to borrow The Healing of America: A Global Quest for Better, Cheaper, and Fairer Health Care, written by New York Times bestselling author T. R. Reid. The goal of the “Summer Reid” program is to encourage residents to discuss health care in our communities and ideas for making improvements.
The Healing of America explains health systems in other countries, including Japan, France, and Germany. Using plain English, Reid explains the state of health care in the United States and around the world. Individuals who read the book have the chance to win a copy and enjoy an invitation-only dinner hosted by Aligning Forces for Quality - South Central PA where Reid will be speaking. Thirty winners will be chosen. After reading the book, residents can participate in a discussion using a discussion guide and complete a survey to be entered into the drawing.
T.R. Reid has been confirmed as the keynote speaker for the Aligning Forces Population Health meeting this September as well.
