At the Tampa Bay Regional Campus, most people know that the library offers reserve textbooks and study rooms. They don't know that we offer programming like curated book displays and drop-in study breaks with snacks. This library guide will feature two monthly book displays: Take a Second and Topics in Healthcare. Books on the display pages will be divided by format (i.e. e-book, e-audiobook, or print book).

“Self-love is no longer a luxury meant only for a privileged few. I am trying to save my life every day. I value it too much not to try.”
"While the contemporary term, “selfie,” was generated by 21st century efforts via social media to record and share experiences with other humans, the first “selfies” were prehistoric hand-prints or negative-stencil hand images and human stick figures.”
“In the journey from the policy page to the delivery room, these specific Andean practices are recreated as mere tokens of culture in a medicalization process whose basic power dynamics remain unchanged and as problematic as ever.”
“Although Latinos are often discussed as a community due to shared values and cultural elements, it is important to consider the heterogeneity within the Latino community and to attend to specific factors such as history, culture, and immigration history that vary by country.”
“Most importantly, these health-care providers failed to see how, in constructing and maintaining their own positive moral identity, they were led to treat each other and their patients unequally, and thus to contradict their ideals of doing good.”
“Mexico and other Latin American countries are finding that, while they too benefit from increased longevity, they are not well positioned to address the needs of their elderly populations, much less the needs of their youth.”
“Before, domestic violence had in many ways been seen as merely a ‘normal’ part of the social fabric, and the power inequalities that made this form of violence against women possible remained largely ‘invisible.’”
