Weathering: The Extraordinary Stress of Ordinary Life in an Unjust Society: A Book Club Discussion 

Michigan Public Health Association Public Health Nursing Section

May 21  |  6-7 pm  FREE and ONLINE  

Dr. Arline T. Geronimus coined the term “weathering” to describe the effects of systemic oppression—including racism and classism—on the body. In Weathering, based on more than 30 years of research, she argues that health and aging have more to do with how society treats us than how well we take care of ourselves. She explains what happens to human bodies as they attempt to withstand and overcome the challenges and insults that society leverages at them, and details how this process ravages their health. And she proposes solutions. Come join our discussion as we generate new knowledge and strategies to both recognize and intercept the presence ad effects of weathering in our personal and professional lives. You do NOT need to have read the book to join! Join the Teams meeting here .Meeting ID: 244 356 225 611 Passcode: mRDqrR
