The JSU Campus Reading Community Book Discussion
“The State of Health and Healthcare in Mississippi”
Featuring Dr. Mario J. Azevedo
The Jackson State University Campus Reading Community was launched in Fall 2010 here at Jackson State University. Its vision is to inspire reading throughout the JSU campus and the surrounding community. Having discussed books such as Where Do We Go From Here: Chaos or Community by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, The Souls of Black Folk by W.E.B. DuBois, Lynch Street by Tim Spofford, Medgar Evers: Mississippi Martyr by Michael V. Williams, James Meredith; Warrior and the America That Created Him, by Meredith Coleman McGee, this Reading Community has been a way to stimulate the intellectual discourse on the campus and surrounding communities.
Please join us Thursday, April 7, 2016 at 6:00 pm in the Fannie Lou Hamer Institute @ COFO exhibit room located at 1017 John R. Lynch Street, Jackson, MS
In this session of the 2015-2016 academic year, The JSU Campus Reading Community will discuss his book, The State of Health and Healthcare in Mississippi featuring Dr. Mario J. Azevedo, Professor and Dean, The College of Liberal Arts, Jackson State University.
This multidisciplinary book provides the most accurate and most recent information on health and health care in the state of Mississippi.
