Semester Book Study: Tuesdays With Morrie by Mitch Albom
This semester we will learn about the anatomy and physiology of the human
body, disorders, and careers in the medical field.
Tuesdays With Morrie is a story about a young man and his college professor.
The college professor learns that he has a fatal disease. Through the phases of this
disease he continues to teach about the value of living life, while he is dying.
I chose this book for us to study because many of you are considering medical
careers and all of you will encounter individuals dealing with an illness at some point in
