New NNLM Book Discussion Title Announced

Posted by on August 4th, 2023 Posted in: Education, Health Disparities, Public Health, Training & Education

Registration is now open for the NNLM Book Discussion featuring The Invisible Kingdom: Reimagining Chronic Illness by Meghan O’Rourke. This thought-provoking book explores the realm of chronic illnesses that often go undiagnosed and unrecognized, shedding light on the experiences of those affected by conditions that are often misunderstood and overlooked.

The book discussion will take place from August 14th to October 31st, allowing you time to acquire and read the book in your preferred format and pace.

In addition to the self-paced, online discussions and resources in the NNLM training platform Moodle, we have scheduled two (optional) live discussions to facilitate engaging conversations among participants. The first live discussion will be on Tuesday, September 26th. The second live discussion will occur on Wednesday, October 25th. These discussions will provide an excellent opportunity to share insights and perspectives with fellow professionals; deepen our understanding of chronic illness; and earn continuing education credit.

To join the book discussion, acquire a copy of The Invisible Kingdom in your preferred format and start reading.

On August 14th, join us in Moodle to explore related resources and participate in either the online discussion or one of the live discussions.

We look forward to your participation and the meaningful conversations emerging from this collective exploration of chronic illness.
