Events

Fall Book Club

Time: 4:30 - 6:30pm

Location: Gaines Hall, Room 47 (or other location TBD)

Details: A professional book discussion series is sponsored each year for students of the GPHN, faculty, preceptors and members of the OHSU community. Three to four nutrition-related books are read and discussed. Books selected for discussion provide a balanced depiction of a nutrition-policy issue, a nutrition-ethics issue, and/or a nutrition-history, current nutrition trend or professional development topic. Students enrolled in this course work in small groups to create discussion questions, invite content experts or identify a relevant YouTube video or TED talk segment, market and host one of the book discussions.
