Not only does the topic of this year’s selected book offer students learning opportunities in the fields of general healthcare, such as Pharmacology, Emergency Medical Technicians and Nursing, but also benefits those who are studying Criminal Justice, Psychology, Counseling, Political Government, Journalism, and more.
