Diversity and Inclusion Book Club: The Beauty in Breaking

An African American emergency room physician explores how a life of service to others taught her how to heal herself. In the ensuing years, as Harper learned to become an effective ER physician, bringing insight and empathy to every patient encounter, she came to understand that each of us is broken—physically, emotionally, and psychically. How we recognize those breaks, how we try to mend them, and where we go from there are all crucial parts of the healing process.
