Biomed Book Club Launch

By Megan Phillips and Marta Holwina

The Salford Biomedicine Society have launched their very own book club, and we’d love you to get involved! We’re looking for students of all literary abilities to join us. 

Every month you will be tasked with reading a thought-provoking, general interest book to discuss at the next group meeting, where we will explore new ideas, themes, and ways of thinking. Six exciting book titles with varied themes have been selected – these can be found on the club flyer. 

We hope that by joining our club, we can create a fun community for everyone to get involved in! 

The club is open to members of the Salford Biomedicine Society. If you haven’t already joined the society, you can do this by searching for ‘Biomedicine Society’ on the Student Union website, and completing a membership form. Once you’re part of the society you will be added to the Microsoft Teams group, where you will be able to access our video meetings and group chat. 

Last month, the book club discussed When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi. We talked about the pressures of medicine, whether life begins at conception and what is truly valuable in life and death. 

Get ready for some discussion, debate and reflection!  We hope to see you soon!
