Public Reading of Medic Against Bomb

A Doctor’s Poetry of War

Fred_Foote_round.jpgInstitute Scholar Fred Foote, MD, will deliver a multimedia reading from his newly published book of poetry, Medic Against Bomb. The work was inspired by his encounters with Wounded Warriors at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center as well as his time as a military physician aboard the U.S. Navy Hospital Ship COMFORT during the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

Winner of the 2013 Grayson Books Poetry prize, Medic Against Bomb also describes the inspiring service of our nation’s military medics and the healing efforts of personnel at the United States Department of Veterans Affairs.

With readings planned across Maryland, Dr. Foote intends for Medic Against Bomb to familiarize the public with the experiences and needs of Wounded Warriors. Through discussion following each reading, he aims to stimulate the creation of local initiatives that employ the arts and nature to reintegrate and heal Warriors and Veterans.

Medic Against Bomb is available at Amazon and Grayson Books. For more information about the book and related events, visit medicagainstbomb.com.TIIH_FB_10.13.14
