by Russ Roberts

Discussion Facilitators

Manasa S. Ayyala, MD, Rutgers New Jersey Medical School
Rachel Levine, MD, MPH, Scott Wright, MD, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine

In this year’s book club, we will discuss Wild Problems: A Guide to the Decisions That Define Us. In this book, the author (host of the economics podcast EconTalk) explores how to creatively navigate life’s biggest questions and face life's big decisions. What is a life well-lived? What is the right decision? We will discuss together how we might apply the experiences & strategies discussed in this book to the “big questions” in our clinical, education, research, and leadership work and in pursuing this year’s meeting theme of strengthening relationships and valuing our diversity. 

The facilitators of this session have been members of many book clubs and have been leading a book club for GIM fellows for years. The session will be fun, and we will all learn together. Happy reading!

You can still participate even if you don’t finish (or read) the book.
