DEI Book Club Author Chat: Pam Fessler Discussing “Carville’s Cure: Leprosy, Stigma, and the Fight for Justice”
“The truth is that for centuries tens of millions of people around the world have been unnecessarily scorned, isolated, and imprisoned. Fear of leprosy has largely been fear of the unknown, inflamed by biblical depictions of the disease as God’s way of punishing sinners by condemning them to a life of suffering and scorn.” – Pam Fessler, Carville’s Cure: Leprosy, Stigma, and the Fight for Justice
This month the Diversity and Inclusivity Book Club, hosted by the School of Public Health’s Diversity and Inclusivity Committee, will discuss Carville’s Cure: Leprosy, Stigma, and the Fight for Justice by Pam Fessler as its May read.
