The 2017 summer reading selection for the class of 2021, No Apparent Distress by Dr. Rachel Pearson, highlights and illustrates the intellectual theme for 2017-2018: "Who We Are." Dr. Pearson, a graduate of the MD/PhD program in medical humanities at the University of Texas at Austin, reflects on her experience in medical school and her training as a physician in community health clinics. Her memoir considers the intersections of class, gender, sexual identity, race and ethnicity as they relate to the delivery of medical care in the United States. Prior to attending medical school, Dr. Pearson studied in the MFA program in creative writing at Columbia University.
