Knopf). Emma will also discuss her time at Hopkins, how it put her on her current path, and how she got published.

Plucked from the small island off the coast of Massachusetts where she grew up, she soon finds herself on tour with Jesse and his band, a record deal in hand, and a hit song climbing the charts. Caught up in the thrill of the road and the profound connection she has with Jesse, Jane is blindsided by the discovery she makes about the dark secret beneath his music. Heartbroken and blackballed by an industry built on appearances, Jane, a truly gifted musician with a secret of her own, must figure out just how much she is willing to sacrifice for her dreams.  “I’ve never read a book that so uniquely captures the experience of creativity and the shimmering coolness of being in a recording studio as music history is made.  Emma Brodie perfectly channels the languorous romance of the time and the beautiful struggle of an artistic soul trying to break free.  So many of the passages throughout Songs in Ursa Major are such pure poetry, I got chills as I read them.  I could drink a case of this book, and I’d still be on my feet.” - Kevin Kwan, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Crazy Rich Asians To purchase the book, CLICK HERE.  ABOUT THE AUTHOR Emma Brodie (A&S '11), Author, Songs in Ursa Major Emma Brodie has worked in book publishing for a decade, most recently as an executive editor at Little, Brown's Voracious imprint. She graduated from the Johns Hopkins University's Writing Seminars program, and is a longtime contributor to HuffPost and a faculty member at Catapult.

BloombergSchoolofPublicHealth Virtual September 09, September 9, ThursdayRural Health Crisis: Bringing Providers and Care to Rural Alabama In many urban areas of the United States, there is no shortage of healthcare professionals. Whether those professionals are in private practice or in the hospital system, many are accessible geographically and specialists are common. Unfortunately, residents in more rural areas don’t always have the same experience. In many rural areas in the United States, residents are facing multiple roadblocks to care: physicians and nurses are not always available, residents may have to drive several hours to seek care, trust in healthcare professionals may be low, and the potential financial burden of a doctor’s visit may be high because of gaps in healthcare coverage. These roadblocks lead to fewer doctor visits, fewer wellness checkups, and a resulting higher likelihood of larger health concerns as residents age or don’t seek treatment for early symptoms. Join us for a conversation with Roger Smalligan, MD, MPH, as he discusses a program through the University of Alabama at Birmingham-Huntsville that works to train doctors to serve rural areas of Alabama and increase access to care for rural residents. Roger Smalligan, MD ’87, MPH ’93, joined the University of Alabama at Birmingham-Huntsville as Dean of the Regional Medical Campus in 2017.  This position allowed him to combine his passion for providing outstanding clinical care, teaching the next generation of physicians and facilitating research at smaller centers.  He received his MD at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, completed Med-Peds training at Vanderbilt, and a Master of Public Health at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.  Nine years leading in a rural hospital in the Amazon region of Ecuador later led to academic endeavors from Tennessee to Texas to Alabama.  He has published over 40 articles in the peer-reviewed literature and over 100 abstracts at regional and national meetings.  One of the realities Smalligan encountered in Alabama was a severe shortage of physicians in the many rural counties.  He was able to support and encourage a small but strong faculty team that was working hard to identify talented rural young people and help prepare them for life as rural physicians in the state.  These efforts have been successful and Smalligan is now applying lessons learned to bolster the diversity of the student body at the same time.  Smalligan enjoys spending time with his wife and friends in activities such as running, hiking, playing tennis, and attending cultural and church activities.  rural-healthcare
