The International Health IDARE Reading Group meets once a month, mid-month, to engage in meaningful discussions around the role of inclusion, diversity, anti-racism, equity, and decolonization in our daily lives (in Baltimore and globally) and in our scholarship. Each meeting’s readings and other media focuses on a specific topic as decided by the group through a poll in the previous meeting.
The group is open to all members of the International Health Department and welcomes suggestions for readings and/or pieces for discussion. If you would like to make a suggestion or to join the group, please email Sarah Champagne at firstname.lastname@example.org.
