HUSH Podcast #99 – A Book with a Medical Theme

Show Notes

In this episode, we talk about compelling books with a medical theme — and they aren’t all from the Health Information Neighborhood. Whether you ultimately choose fiction, nonfiction, science fiction or books for teens, you have a variety of books with doctors, nurses, illness, mutating viruses, mental hospitals and medicines to fulfill this square on your Reading Bingo card. Our interview with Julie Nelson, nonfiction expert and passionate reader, features six recommendations for your “A Book with a Medical Theme” square. HUSH co-hosts Thad Hartman, Miranda Ericsson, and Lissa Staley share their recommendations and plans for completing the Reading Bingo cover-all challenge, along with dozens of listener-submitted recommendations for more great reads!
