so nicely with our Annual Meeting theme.*

*Understanding Racism and Health with the NNLM Reading Club: *The NNLM
Reading Club July 2020 selections focus on the topic of Racism and Health,
with special attention to Black maternal health. The three selections
explore motherhood through the experiences of Black women in different
ways. NNLM encourages you to use one of them to start a conversation about
racism and health or keep an existing discussion going. You’ll find the
discussion guides, book & author information and more on the NNLM Reading
