The 2022 Professional Reading List
I am starting this year’s Professional reading list with two quotes that are appropriate for today’s time. The first is “The great aim of education is not knowledge but action.” Herbert Spencer. The second is Change is the end result of all true learning.” by Leo Buscaglia.
Today our world is in turmoil, and it is up to each of us to learn, share accurate information and teach others what we know so they can be better in all aspects of their lives. To do this, WE must be educated. As healthcare professionals it is our obligation to continuously learn.
To assist YOU, I share my 2022 Professional Reading list. These are the newsletters and other resources that I read to stay up to date on healthcare as well as events happening around the world. I hope you will check them out and choose a few that will help you learn!
