About KUMC One Book

KUMC One Book

How this program began: 
The KUMC One Book program is an evolution of the Peter T. Bohan Lecture that has been a tradition since 1947. In the past few years, the lectureship has introduced the KUMC campus to such notable speakers as Michael Moss, Rye Barcott, and Samantha Nutt, and also provided limited books to campus reading groups. The 2016 expansion to KUMC One Book allowed all members of the KUMC community to participate by reading and discussing a common book and attending the Peter T. Bohan Lecture in April. Join the Club was the first KUMC One Book selection and the Peter T. Bohan Lecture featured the author, Tina Rosenberg. KUMC One Book seeks to engage students, faculty, and staff in discussions and lectures centered around a shared text for years to come.  

Program mission: 
The KUMC One Book program's mission is to strengthen the KUMC campus community by engaging students, faculty and staff in a shared discussion and reflection on a common text. The program will explore ways to improve health, as only we can, through social change and community responsibility.
