Read & Reflect - Mountains Beyond Mountains

In medical school, Paul Farmer found his life's calling: to cure infectious diseases and to bring the lifesaving tools of modern medicine to those who need them most. In Mountains Beyond Mountains Pulitzer Prize winning author Tracey Kidder takes you from Harvard to Haiti, Peru, Cuba, and Russia as Farmer changes people's minds through his dedication to the philosophy that "the only real nation is humanity". A true story about a gifted man who loves the world and has set out to do all he can to cure it. All are welcome to attend.
