Meet the Physician series resumes

MARQUETTE — At noon Wednesday, members of the Patient and Family Advisory Board will give a panel presentation in this month’s Meet the Physician series in collaboration with the library’s Your Mind Matters series in the Peter White Public Library’s Shiras Room.

The Patient and Family Advisory Board is comprised of a group of volunteers. They partner patients and families with members of the health care team with the goal of ensuring that every patient receives excellent care. They also provide the medical team with feedback and suggestions for improving services for patients and families.

This monthly lunch and learn session is sponsored by the U.P. Health System of Marquette and the Peter White Public Library. Bring a sack lunch as well as any questions for the doctor. There is no admission charge to attend.

Reading group to meet Thursday

MARQUETTE — The Transition Marquette County Reading Group begins another year at 7 p.m. on Thursday in the Dandelion Cottage Room at Peter White Public Library in Marquette to discuss “Surviving the Future: Culture, Carnival, and Capital in the Aftermath of the Market Economy.”

The content of this book is from David Fleming, selected and edited after Fleming died by Shaun Chamberlin. Fleming claims that for three centuries, the market economy has been the source and framework for a loose and easy-going, but effective, civil society and social order. Going forward, we will need to look for other options. He describes a “lean culture” that we could move into.

The Transition Marquette County reading Group meets on the second Thursday of each month to discuss books reflecting the Mission Statement: Transition Marquette County promotes creative, compassionate, resilient communities in Northern Michigan. The group’s goals include nurturing individual and community self-reliance especially in the areas of food, health, water, energy, and housing. Anyone is welcome to participate.

It would help to have at least started to read the book. For more information call Charlie at 226-3314 or email mqtchaz@gmail.com
