Dean Barbara K. Rimer, of University of North Carolina Gillings School of Global Public Health, recommends:
- The Broken Ladder: How Inequality Affects the Way We Think, Live and Die, by Dr. Keith Payne, professor of psychology and neuroscience at UNC-Chapel Hill and a leading international expert in the psychology of inequality and discrimination. “The book is highly relevant to public health, particularly in the U.S.,” Dr. Rimer says.
- Inside Graduate Admissions: Merit, Diversity and Faculty Gatekeeping, by Dr. Julie R. Posselt.
- “I’ve been fascinated by the great influenza pandemic of 1918 in this centennial anniversary period and inspired by the Gillings School’s April Going Viral symposium,” Dean Rimer says. “That made The End of Epidemics: The Looming Threat to Humanity and How to Stop It, by Dr. Jonathan Quick and Ms. Bronwyn Fryer, quite an interesting read.”
