Let’s Talk About It, Oklahoma is a reading program designed to engage participants in discussion through readings in the humanities. It is uniquely able to reach small communities throughout the state and provide quality products through scholar-led discussions. The program is based on the premise that reading and discussing books fosters a sense of community as participants exchange ideas and acquire new perspectives. Each reading program has five books in the series and last an average of two months.
Literature & Medicine is a humanities reading and discussion program for health care professionals. The program was created to give participants an opportunity to reflect on their roles and relationships in the health care community and society through literature. By improving the way in which medical professionals view their role in their health care institution, Literature and Medicine indirectly improves the entire health care community, from the patient to the head of surgery. The program is open to all professionals in the hospital community and diversity in participants (nurses, custodians, staff, and doctors) will be encouraged.
