November 2017 Reading Round-Up

What’s piqued my interest recently? The usual “quite a few things”…

After last weekend’s latest horrific mass shooting, this article about converting bystanders to responders seems more relevant than ever. If you want to learn how to Stop the Bleed, look for a class here.

I really, really love stories because they provide so much meaning to us.  Apparently narrative comments are also helpful for understanding trainee performance.

Fun reading for November: Another Brooklyn by Jacqueline Woodson.  I’m about 5 chapters into this, which is our book group reading for the month, and it is wonderful.

And now, an added bonus per a Twitter request-
